Awaken the Senses

Known as koh in Japanese, incense was first brought to Japan from China by Buddhist priests in the 6th century. Incense is produced by mixing natural gums, precious resins, and floral ingredients with organic materials. Incense is an ideal way to calm the mind and awaken the senses.
