Japanese Incense

Japanese incense (koh) has been an important facet of Japanese culture since the 6th century CE. Known for its purity, subtle blending, and use of rare scents including aloeswood and sandalwood, it is used for a variety of purposes, including Buddhist ceremonies, spirituality, and meditation. In Japan, blending incense is considered an art form, and appreciating incense is considered a form of meditation known as listening to incense. A 9" stick will burn for about 40-45 minutes, a 5" stick will burn about half an hour.
