Kungyokudo: The Oldest Incense Maker

The story of Kungyokudo dates back to 1594. With a history of over 420 years, Kungyokudo is Japan's oldest incense supplier, creating the scents of Japanese temples, ceremonies and everyday life throughout each generation.

In the incense book handed down within the family for 17 generations, not only the techniques of incense blending, but also generational plants used in Chinese medicine, including fragrant trees that have been matured over many years, are kept within the family.

It has taken us a long while to find incense that uses high quality ingredients with scents that are relevant yet traditional. We are pleased to be stocking a wide range of Kungyokudo incense.
