What is Japanese Candle
Japanese candles ("Wa Rousoku" in Japanese) are 100% plant-based. They are made from the fruit of the Japanese sumac tree (Rhus succedanea) or rice bran wax, and Washi paper for the core.
Japanese candles are mentioned in the "Taihei-ki" around 1375. It is thought that they began to be made around that time.
Handcrafted by Traditional Japanese Candle Maker, Daiyo
The Daiyo brand was established in 1914 in Shiga Prefecture Japan and has now been passed through four generations over a hundred years.
They produce high quality Japanese candles for a wide variety of purposes, ranging from religious candles used in Buddhist altars and temples, for Cha-no-yu rituals (a Japanese traditional ritual for serving and drinking tea), to Japanese candles as congratulatory gifts and endowments, or even for everyday use.
Story of the mouse and cat on the package
Cats have long been kept in Japanese candle shop houses.
The raw material of wax for Japanese candles feeds mice.
Therefore, Japanese candle shops employ cats to protect the precious wax from mice.
In other words, a candle shop with a cat is a sign that the shop uses natural raw materials.
