Japanese Incense from Shoyeido

Shoyeido incense is known for being a traditional Japanese incense manufacturer, who continues to purchase natural ingredients.

Shoyeido incense is possibly the most popular Japanese incense in the world. The Shoyeido incense company in Japan has been making premium Japanese incense for over 300 years. We hope you enjoy our selection of natural Shoyeido incense scents.

From lot to lot, master blenders work very hard to make subtle adjustments to retain the consistent fragrance of a particular incense. They consider the process to be an artistic endeavor rather than mere "production". Human sensitivity is highly-valued in Shoyeido's incense making.

The density of a single stick of incense matters significantly. Fineness or coarseness of ground ingredients affect its burning temperature. Natural incense needs to breathe. If it is too dense, it burns at a lower temperature which changes the scent. On the other hand, if it is too loose, it burns at a higher temperature and the fragrance may be diminished.
