Oedo-Koh incense is a specialist range of Japanese incense inspired by the Edo period in Japan, from the 1600s to the 1800s.
Edo was the name for the old city now known as Tokyo and it was renowned for having its own unique culture. Nippon Kodo’s Oedo-Koh incense was developed to tell the tales through fragrance of people and their lives, characteristic of old Edo.
The high-quality incense in the Oedo-Koh range is made by skilled artisans in Tokyo. The products feature traditional colours and scents, as well as Japanese patterns and surface textures on the boxes. These incense products all come in paulownia wood boxes and have Ukigo-e paintings inside for an authentic Edo-inspired scene.
Oedo-Koh incense comes with a small incense holder made of tin (a popular metal during the Edo period) that’s said to represent the stone pavements in old Edo.
