Perfect for the summer season, we now have the beautiful floral candles hand crafted using plant derived materials with Hydrangea and Asagao (Morning Glory) which are two of the popular flowers in summer in Japan. These vegan candles are hand crafted by Daiyo in Shiga prefecture using the traditional techniques and flowers are exclusively hand painted by a master artisan who paints Kiyomizu-yaki wares in Kyoto. Candles are made using natural rice bran wax and the pair comes in a fine paper box with "E-rousoku" (meaning "floral painted candles") printed in a beautiful Japanese font.

Floral painted candles are originated in Tohoku, during the harsh winter when it used to be very hard to get fresh flowers people started to paint flowers on the candles and used them for the buddhist altar at their homes as alternatives to fresh flowers.

These candles are perfect to use as decoration, as alternatives to flowers in the hot summer season, or as special gift to special someone.

Traditional Japanese candles are completely handmade and give very little smoke, drip and a brighter light than modern paraffin candles. 

*Box is slightly different from the images shown although the front looks almost the same.

Candle stand does NOT include. You will need to use a candle stand for Japanese candles. Best matching candle stand is Cast Iron Square candle stand in Medium size.
