The oblong shape of these candles is meant to call to mind that of a sturdy pine tree and pay homage to “The Pine Trees” screen, painted by Tohaku Hasegawa, who is considered a great painter of Japan. They are made the same way since 1892.
Reflecting the landscape of Nanao City, filled with pine trees, the flame of this candle is an extension of the gentle lines of these trees, bringing to mind a rustic simplicity.
Made in Japan from sumac wax, washi paper, and dried rush wick. 4.25" H x .75" Ø. Each burns for around 130 minutes.

TAKAZAWA have been making candle since 1892
Since 1892, the candle-making company Takazawa Candle has provided candlelight in harmony with nature from Japan. Takazawa Candle has been making candles from the grace of plants such as the fruits of the sumac tree, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil since 1892. Their candles' flames are bigger and brighter than other companies. The flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century, and it is the symbol of ancestral wisdom. When there were no electric lights, light meant candles, and a lot of thought was put into making candlelight brighter. Their wick is made from plant-based materials such as dried rush and washi paper, thus symbolizing the beautiful relationship between our ancestors and nature. Sumac wax from the Kyushu region and Japanese paper (wa-shi) from Iwami (in Shimane Prefecture), used for wicks, were brought to Nanao to produce candles. The finished product was then transported throughout Japan by a Kitamae ship. Many guilds made candles in Nanao until the late 19th century. Takazawa Candle was established in 1892. They are the only candle makers to keep this tradition alive in Nanao.
