Description

 The bustle of the bath house, where neighbors laugh and splash together. A warm and friendly fragrance for after bath time. In the Edo Period (1603-1868 ) people did not have baths at home, therefore public bath houses were built to meet the need. At first they were steam baths, then large bathtubs were developed. As people were unclothed and co-mingled without regard for age, gender, or rank, the bath house was an egalitarian place. A popular item for these bath house-goers was a scented lotion made with distilled floral essences using a device called “ranbiki.” OEDO-KOH Water Drop is a fragrance that has such floral warmth like the moment you step out of bath. 

Box includes 60 sticks and a tin incense stand, burn time: approx. 12 min

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.
