Nippon Kodo: Rocking Tray Cast Iron Incense Burner


Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honored tradtion that started more than 400 years ago and can be traced back to Jyuemon Takai, better known as Koju, a skilled artisan in the art and principal provider of previous, rare, and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his court. 

Many of those pleasing and enduring high quality incense fragrances, which the company still continues to produce to this day, are based on the original formulas created by Koju and later by Yujiro Kito, who was hailed the genius of fragrance during the Meiji restoration period in the 19th century - around the time Japan opened its doors to the world and began to modernize itself.
