This type of wax has been used as a raw material for candles since ancient times in Japan. Production has been decreasing every year, and at present, there are only a few companies making pure Japanese wax candles. Takazawa Candle Co. is known to be one of the finest.
Candles made of Japanese wax have a unique stickiness making the melted wax less likely to run during use.
Takazawa Candle Co. continues making efforts to protect the natural environment of the trees they cultivate and to preserve the autumn scenery filled with red-coloured leaves while producing these traditional Japanese wax candles.
Depending on the soil of the Haze tree cultivation area, and the year of wax accumulation, Takazawa Candles result in a variety of soft colours. The beautiful white powder appearing on the surface of each candle is a reliable proof of the natural material contained within.
Created for people who spend time enjoying candles, for those who harvest the wax from trees, and for nature. This is a candle that attempts to connect all involved. There is nothing quite like a gently flickering flame to enhance moments of relaxation.
Since 1892, the candle making company Takazawa Candle has been providing the candlelight in harmony with nature from Japan.
They have been making candles from the grace of plants such as the fruits of sumac tree, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil since 1892. Takazawa candles' flames are bigger and brighter than other companies. The flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century, and it is the symbol of ancestral wisdom. At a time when there were no electric lights, light means candles, and a lot of thought was put into making candlelight brighter.
Their wick is made from plant-based materials such as dried rush and washi-paper, thus symbolising the beautiful relationship between our ancestors and nature. The powerful flame, flickering from the simple silhouette of a candle, producing shadows in a room, creates a great atmosphere that makes you feel relaxed while you spend time with your family and close friends.
