MAKER OF TAKAZAWA CANDLES
Since 1892, Takazawa Candle has been making candles from the grace of plants such as the fruits of sumac tree, rice bran and as well rapeseed flower oil in harmony with nature. The flames of their candles are usually bigger and brighter than the ones we are used to. It comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century, and it is the symbol of ancestral wisdom. At a time when there were no electric lights, light meant candles, and a lot of thought was put into making candlelight brighter. The wick of the Takazawa Candle is made from plant-based materials such as dried rush and washi-paper, thus symbolising the beautiful relationship between their ancestors and nature. Today, Takazawa Candle is the only candle maker keeps this tradition alive in Nanao.

HOW TO USE

THOUGHTS BEHIND THE TAKAZAWA CANDLES
The philosophy of Takazawa Candles, their worshipping of ancient candlelight making traditions and the delicacy of their products truly reflects a side of Japan we admire. All products are so simple and fragile yet so unique and pure perfection. The packaging reminds us of Japan a lot, we think all candles are a wonderful gift to a loved one or yourself. When we lit a Takazawa candle, a fascinating, intense, flickering flame evoke. One that we have never seen before. It does not matter how small these candles are, the flame is astonishingly bright and beautiful. We sometimes just sit at home and watch these candles.
