Incense Stick Making Workshop

In the workshop, you can enjoy the process of making senko with our incense artisans.

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. 

Senko, an incense stick, is shaped like a long slender stick so that senko’s burning time lasts longer, and its fragrance can be enjoyed for a long time. In the workshop, you can enjoy the process of making senko with our incense artisans.  Senko is solid, long and slender, but fresh senko is very soft like clay. You need to work with care in order to make a beautiful straight-shaped senko! Dry up the fresh senko for about an hour, and then the work is done. Most Japanese people don’t know how to make senko!  We would really like you to enjoy this valuable senko-making experience!
