Takazawa Candle creates traditional Japanese candles, called "WA-ROUSOKU." These candles are hand-crafted from natural waxes and special plant-based, hollow core wicks, which are made from washi paper and wrapped in dried rush. This process and intention is a symbol of the beautiful relationship between our ancestors and nature.
They established their candle-making business in 1892 in the city of Nanao, Ishikawa Prefecture within the Noto Peninsula of Japan. Today, Takazawa Candle are the only candle maker that keeps this tradition alive in Nanao.
