Matsumoto shoten ”Warosoku”
The flame of the Japanese candle is larger than any other type of candle, and has a very artistic atmosphere.
Strong, Relaxing, Environmentally Friendly
The flame is strong enough to keep flickering even in bracing winds. Also, because their soot is easy to clean up, Japanese candles are often used in temples and in household Buddhist alters. Recently, the value of Japanese candles in interior use is being rediscovered, because their flames have so much relaxation power. It is scientifically proven that the flame fluctuation of Japanese candles produces "1/2 fluctuation", which has the power to alleviate stress.
All Natural Ingredients
Japanese candles are primarily comprised of vegetable waxes extracted from Haze (Japanese wax tree) or ice bran. The wicks are also quite different from western candles. Wicks are comprised of Japanese paper (Washi) and rush. Although western candles use a string for their wick, Japanese wax has a stronger viscosity than its western counterpart, so it is well-suited to the wicks made of Japanese paper and rush. This lends Japanese candles a unique flame.
