Gozan Koh Granulated Incense
Gozan Koh (Five Mountains) is a granulated incense by Nippon Kodo containing raw ingredients of sandalwood, aloeswood, star anise, etc. Use by sprinking a pinch or two of the chipped mixture onto burnt charcoal, inside a vessel of ash. Charcoal and ash are sold separately.
Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honoured tradition that started more then 400 years ago and can be traced back to Jyuemon Takai, better known as Koju, a skilled artisan in the art and the principal provider of precious rare and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his court.
Many of those pleasing and enduring high-quality incense fragrances, which the company continues to produce to this day, as based on the original formulas created by Koju and later by Yujiro Kito, who was hailed as the genius of fragrance during the Meiji restoration period in the 19th century – around the time that Japan opened its doors and began to modernise itself.
Made in Japan.
