The wick is made by wrapping a dried reed around a washi paper cylinder, giving the candle a tall, intense flame and brighter light compared to modern paraffin candles. Using plant-based materials also generates less soot and very little smoke.
This set includes 2 candles individually wrapped in washi paper and one small Koma iron candle holder.

 
Tohaku candles are Made of Japanese wax known as Haze, which is cultivated from the fruit of trees grown in Chikugo, Fukuoka Prefecture.

This type of wax has been used as a raw material for candles since ancient times in Japan. Production has been decreasing every year, and at present, there are only a few companies making pure Japanese wax candles. Takazawa Candle Co. is known to be one of the finest.

Candles made of Japanese wax have a unique stickiness making the melted wax less likely to run during use.

Takazawa Candle Co. continues making efforts to protect the natural environment of the trees they cultivate and to preserve the autumn scenery filled with red-coloured leaves while producing these traditional Japanese wax candles.

Depending on the soil of the Haze tree cultivation area, and the year of wax accumulation, Takazawa Candles result in a variety of soft colours.

The beautiful white powder appearing on the surface of each candle is a reliable proof of the natural material contained within.

Created for people who spend time enjoying candles, for those who harvest the wax from trees, and for nature. This is a candle that attempts to connect all involved. There is nothing quite like a gently flickering flame to enhance moments of relaxation
