Oedo-Koh incense sticks with the gentle scent of cherry blossom
Enjoy the joy of spring when young and old alike feel the pull of nature with the sweet, gentle scent of cherry blossoms.
The custom of cherry blossom viewing originated in the Edo period. The Somei Yoshino cherry tree, which can now be seen in groves throughout Japan, was originally an ornamental garden variety grown in the village of Somei near Edo. The viewing of the cherry blossom was also an opportunity for Edo residents to meet, showcase and perform: Matching fancy kimonos were worn for the occasion, and people sang and danced to celebrate the coming of spring. The beguiling scent of cherry blossoms heralds the arrival of spring.
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 scent of cherry blossoms can be used at any time of day and 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.
