Beautiful hand painted Japanese traditional candles now available in the 12 months set with flower from each month is painted on each candle stick. Floral painted candles are originated in Tohoku (northern Japan), 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.
