Koh-Do* Incense – traditional high quality incense, made by Nippon Kodo, in small, affordable and attractive boxes.
This Incense has Sandalwood
top notes, with background notes of Pine Needles
The Sandalwood tree is sacred to Buddhists and other Eastern religions. The perfume given off by its aromatic wood has the virtue of relaxing the body and calming down the mind. It induces spirituality and withdrawal. Any occasion is good to use it, but especially helps internal development, study and meditation.
This variety comes from the Mainichi-koh family of Nippon Kodo incense. ‘Mainichi-koh’ translates into English as 'Incense for everyday use'. This sweet and woody aroma of Sandalwood is highly reminiscent of Japan - this being one of Nippon Kodo’s best-selling varieties there.

✓ Koh-Do from Nippon Kodo and their large box equivalents – all high quality Japanese Incense, made with 100% natural ingredients
Much care has been placed in the design of the Koh-Do boxes – all based on Japanese masterpieces. This echoes the importance the Japanese place on incense burning or ‘listening to incense’. Koh-Do is one of the ‘Geido’ or Fine Arts in Japanese culture, along with ‘Ikebana’ (flower arranging), ‘Shodo’ (Japanese calligraphy), ‘Sado’ (Japanese Tea ceremony), ‘Yakimono’ (Japanese pottery) and ‘Noh’ (traditional Japanese theatre).
