OEDO-KOH incense sticks with the sweet scent of the peony tree
Enjoy the sweet scent of the peony tree. The enchanting peony enjoyed great popularity in Edo. Its beguiling shape is reminiscent of a beautiful geisha, and looking at a peony you can almost hear the music and see the dances of the geisha quarter. This was an exclusive world for the privileged and it is said that the time customers spent in the tea houses was measured with incense sticks.
The scent of peony is a reminder of this beautiful and bygone world.
Oedo-Koh is a range of incense sticks made in Japan by Nippon Kodo. It was inspired by the culture and ambience of the ancient city of Edo (now Tokyo). The sweet scent of peony is best suited for relaxation - whether for meditation, yoga or a wellness treatment.
Only wealthy people and the nobility used to use the scent of incense. Even among ordinary people, who may not have had access to real scented woods, the fascination for these woods was great and they are often depicted in works of Kabuki and Joruri theatre.
