This incense is brought to you in collaboration with the Fukunaga family, a business carrying a legacy of over 120 years. Based on Awaji Island, the region is known for being the original birthplace of incense in Japan.
The history of incense in Japan dates back to an April day in 595 AD, according to The Chronicles of Japan (720 AD) when a piece of aromatic wood drifted to the shores of Awaji Island. With its year-long warm climate and ample sea breeze, the island is an ideal place to dry the incense - a crucial process in its making.
