    They say: Literally translated from the Japanese Mainichi-Koh means 'Incense for everyday use.'

    And that is exactly what it is and what Mainichi-Koh has been in Japan for more than 80 years, where it has enjoyed a wideranging popularity that has appealed to people of all ages recalling unforgettable memories.

    In an age when spiritual longings should transcend material aspirations, it is important to nourish those yearnings that emanate in the heart and motivate one to seek that love, friendship, graciousness and happiness that date back to their earliest remembrances. We, at Nippon Kodo, believe that Mainichi-Koh, which was fashioned from a traditional sandalwood formula that was popular in Japan thousands of years ago, realizes these long-sought goals and evokes an aura of graceful elegance and a feeling of deep contentment.

    What Holisticshop staff think

    "It is great to be selling the number one selling brand in Japan. It shows the beautiful difference in culture. How in Japan for many many people incense really is for everyday use. In common with many cultures burning incense is very much seen as a form of spiritual remembrance and connection. The symbol of this connection to the spiritual is the smoke, which represents the subtle realms.

    The aroma is the woody, sweet popular smell of sandalwood."

    Nippon Kodo Incense - High quality Japanese incense
    The Japanese incense company, Nippon Kodo, was founded over four centuries ago and originally began by producing high quality incense for the Emperor of Japan. The company has continued to thrive ever since, now accounting for more than 50% of the entire incense industry in Japan.

    Over 400 years ago, Jyuemon Takai, or Koju, was the main creator of high quality incense for the Emperor of Japan and his court. Skilled in the art of incense production, he made incense that produced rare and very special aromas. Another key name in the incense creation world, especially during the Meiji restoration period in the 19th century, was Yujiro Kito, and together their recipes and original formulas for these special incenses have been passed down the centuries and many are still used and produced by Nippon Kodo today.

    In particular, there are three of the early incense products that have remained very popular throughout the centuries, both in Japan, and other countries, such as the United States. These three types of incense are Hana-no-Hana, Wakako and Taikan.

    The company have a great philosophy about the importance of celebrating incense and recognise that, although many people simply love the ability of incense to fragrance a room, for others, their use comes down to spiritual and religious traditions. In fact, Nippon Kodo say that, through the production of their traditional Japanese incense they aim to, ‘cherish the ancient traditions and values’.

    Since 1942, Nippon Kodo has become a major international company, catering for the world incense market. Their modern factory base uses the most advanced methods and technology to produce high quality incense, to traditional, tried and tested formulas.

    The ingredients of Nippon Kodo incense are all high quality and are sourced from around the world. Experts help locate and harvest the rare aromatic woods, natural gums, resins and other ingredients used to make their incense. Once acquired, the ingredients are processed by hand, and by machine, in their eight factories in Japan and Hong Kong.

    Japanese incense - High quality, pure
    Japanese incense (speaking in general terms) is refined, pure, light smoke and rich in natural ingredients such as sandalwood. They don't usually have the thin wooden stick centre that is often found in Indian and other incense sticks. They are normally pure incense right the way through the stick. They are often designed with meditation in mind. Due to the high quality manufacturing processes the incense goes through they can be a little bit more expensive than other incense on the market.

    I have had this box of incense for quite a long while now and it still remains my favourite daily incense. Unlike many incense sticks, one stick is all that is needed in a sitting, the smell lasts long after the stick has burned down. Within a moment of lighting the stick, the room fills with a calming essence - it would be impossible to breathe in the beauty of mainichi-koh sandalwood and not feel at one with the universe. Perfect for meditation or to calm you after a hard day
