Chrysanthemums were loved by the people of Edo not only for their beauty, but also as a symbol of longevity. The fragrance is smooth, refreshing, and invigorating. The gardeners of Komagome and Sugamo near Edo are said to have sparked the chrysanthemum craze of the Edo era. Chrysanthemums were believed since ancient times to prolong life, and during the Edo Period the Chrysanthemum Festival became a yearly event where people chrysanthemum sake infused with medicinal blossoms. The smooth, refreshing scent of chrysanthemum will delight you as it did the denizens of old Edo.

Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honored tradition 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 the principal provider of precious rare and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his Court.
