Item Description

Characteristics of a Japanese candle

Japanese candles in "Authentic Goods from Japan," are all hand made, piece by piece.

*How to make "Candle"?

Stripes around wick, which look like annual ring, represent the amount of hand made process. This kind of stripe won't appear on mold made candle.
