Takazawa Candle - Japanese Candle Tohaku Small (6 Piece Set)
The thick, refined shape of these candles is meant to call to mind that of a sturdy pine tree--and pay homage to a famous screen painting at the same time.
A homage to “The Pine Trees” screen, painted by Tohaku Hasegawa, who is considered a great painter of Japan. Reflecting the landscape of Nanao City, filled with pine trees, the flame of this candle is an extension of the gentle lines of these trees, bringing to mind a rustic simplicity.

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.
