Nanao is the name of the city in the heart of the glorious countryside in which Takazawa Candle is located in Japan. Each candle has a motif of a different plant that grows in the Noto Peninsula.
Takazawa Candle has been making candles from the grace of plants such as the fruits of sumac tree, rice bran and rapeseed flower oil since 1892.
Takazawa Candles’ flames are bigger and brighter than most. The flame comes from a special wick made from plant-based materials such as dried rush and washi-paper — a symbol of ancestral wisdom.
Tube contains 4 candles (style A, L, P and T)
Instructions for use:
It is recommended to cut the black burned wick with a trimmer to adjust the size of the flame. Keep the candle away from direct sunlight and wind.
