About Creator & Maker

Usage notes・Product features

Japanese candle has two kinds of vermillion and white. Generally, white is used for daily light, funeral, legal requirement up to the third anniversary. Vermillion is supposed to be used when you make a wish when reporting happy things to your ancestors such as Bonin Lecture, New Year's Day, Bon Festival, Year Opinion, Legal Requirements.

Therefore, if you use the fire altar at your altar, use white color until the seventh time, after that, use vermilion things. However, as in this product, when decorating Japanese candles with paintings and Japanese candles with flowers drawn on their altar (in case of not lighting fire), the picture candle becomes a substitute for flowers So it is not a problem even if you decorate either vermillion or white color.



It is possible to create custom made to match your favorite picture, text, company logo etc according to customer's request. Since it is possible to respond to various sizes of candles, please contact us from the "inquiry page". We have received many requests not only for corporate promotional materials and souvenirs but also "I want you to paint the face of dearly-cherished people and pets." Please use Japanese candles for a more heartfelt dedication.

The biggest difference between Japanese candles and Western candles is in raw materials. Whereas Western candle uses petroleum raw materials, the raw materials of Japanese candles are all vegetable. Therefore, it can be said that it is environmentally friendly candle with less oil smoke.

Unlike Western candle, the Japanese candle characterized by less hot water and a big beautiful flame is made from "grape goby". Actually, the production farmer of the grape juice now only left a house in Wakayama prefecture.

Since it can not be supplied stably in this way, it became a flow to cultivate in Kyoto city.

It takes 3 to 4 years for haze itself to bear fruit, and there are food damage such as deer, so for the time being, to procure fruits from other prefecture for the time being, to ask guidance to farmers in Wakayama prefecture Although it will become, the purpose is to make it possible to produce local products locally.
