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 considered to be 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).
