ABOUT TAKAZAWA CANDLE
Since 1892, the candle making company Takazawa Candle has been providing the candlelight in harmony with nature from Japan.
The first candles in Japan were brought in from China in the 8th century and made from bees wax. Bees wax, as a material, it was not familiar to our ancestors so they tried to make candles from the wax derived from plants. The sumac wax was soft and easy to form into the shape of a candle and so by the 16th century it had become the standard material for candle-making in Japan.
