Takazawa Rousoku in Ishikawa Prefecture is one of the oldest traditional Japanese candle (Warousoku) makers in Japan. Their techniques of candle making have not changed since the 16th century and now they are made by only a handful of Japanese craftsmen. Traditionally used in Buddhist ceremonies and zen meditations, their candles are still popular today. They are made from plant-based raw materials – haze seeds, canola flower, and coconut oils. The unscented candle has a hollow washi paper core, which means it creates less soot and drip, burns with greater intensity and gives brighter flame than modern paraffin candle.
