Incense Making Workshop

Enjoy making incense io Awaji Island, which produces the most incense in Japan! You can choose not only fragrances but also colors and shapes you like

Around the 6th century, incense was introduced into Japan along with Buddhism. Incense also means the art of incense-burning. We can enjoy smelling its natural fragrance produced by burning an aromatic tree, such as ‘kyara (aloeswood )’, ‘jinko (agarwood )’and ‘byakudan (sandalwood). At that time when incense was brought into Japan, the purpose of using incense was to purify a human body and drive away something evil, so it had a religious meaning. Later, incense came to be used by ordinary people in their daily life. And nowadays people often use it as part of aromatherapy for the purpose of relaxing themselves and getting rid of their stress. 

Today, you can enjoy wonderful fragrances expressing a variety of natural elements such as seasonal flowers and plants, water and air, the sun, and rain. First, choose the color of incense expressing fragrance! Then, knead the incense with an earthenware mortar. Don’t worry as it’s easy! Our instructors will show you the process, so just follow their instructions and enjoy the process! Choose whatever fragrance you like, and then cut out the incense with a mold. You can make flower-shaped incense, a heart-shaped and more as you like. You can take about 10 pieces of your favorite incenses home. The incense will become solid and be completed in about a week, so please look forward to it. Light the incense and let thin smoke rise in the air. Put the incense on the plate and enjoy the fragrance. The smoke of incense has relaxing effects, so it would be nice to put it in the entrance and the bathroom.
