Incenses of various shapes: sticks, coils and cones

IMG_1859-800x533_fixHow do you usually use incense?

Stick-like “stick type” with the most opportunities to see,
Small conical “cone”, mosquito coiled “swirl” etc.
There are various types of incense and each incense has its own characteristics.

The stick type has a general length (about 14 cm) called “short” and the burning time is about 20 to 30 minutes.
There are various types, such as longer ones, and those with a length of more than 30 cm, such as Taikunkoh which is used in temples.
As it is easy to get and easy to handle, it is recommended for incense beginners and those who want to easily enjoy the scent.

The cone type has a short burning time of less than 10 minutes,
Because the area where the incense burns is large, the scent spreads at once. (A lot of smoke comes out!)
It is a convenient incense when you want to spread the aroma in a short time, such as in front of a sudden visitor.

Swirl type is incense with long burning time.
It has a general size (about 6 cm in diameter) and the burning time is about 2 hours!
It is popular for those who want to enjoy the scent for a long time, and those who want to always incense them in the shop.

Even the same “incense”, it is interesting that there is a difference depending on the shape!
Everyone, please use different incense different in shape according to your mood and use.

[Incense Making Class] – Great Opportunity When Sightseeing Japan

[Osenkō Making Class]

Lately, we had a wonderful incense class with international attendees that came to our Kohgen Store in Nagoya from Hawaii.

IMG_1371

Osenkō making

They chose to make osenkō(お線香). It is a common misinterpretation that this term refers to Japanese incense sticks, while in fact, it is one of 7 kinds of Japanese incenses collectively called okō(お香). Osenkō can be made in different shapes. The most common are sticks, cones, and coils, but when you are making hand-made incense, you can create any shape you can imagine.

Our guests were very creative. They challenged themselves to make various shapes from common sticks, cones, and coils, up to beautiful and detailed flowers, leaves and even cute small fish with eyes.

Incense Making Class – Leaves and cherry blossoms flowers

Incense Making Class – Fish and cones

The attendees were a married couple and they decided to enrich their sightseeing in Japan with an incense class. After they decided to take osenkō making, we prepared two sets of ingredients. We wanted them to have two different fragrances, one more traditional and manly and one more sweet and feminine.

We had a very nice talk about Japanese incense and ingredients while trying their fragrances and answering the questions that came up.

We hope that our guests had a wonderful time and the hand-made incense souvenirs will be a great opportunity to bring back their memories of traveling in Japan after they are back at home.

If you are also interested in having incense class, please contact us by email for more details.
