Japanese Incense makers are steeped in tradition and understanding of the incense making process. Japanese incense has played various parts in Japanese society including the part of a time piece. Minutes were measured in the time it took certain incenses to burn. Japanese Incenses are traditionally stickless incenses and come with a special burner to put the small, sticks of pure incense into. If you haven't tried Japanese incense, you are in for a treat.
