TAKAZAWA

Takazawa Candle has been making candles from the inspiration of plants such as the fruits of sumac tree, rice bran, and rapeseed flower oil since 1892. The first candles in Japan were brought in from China in the 8th century and made from bees wax. Bees wax, as a material, it was not familiar to the Japanese so they tried to make candles from the wax derived from plants. The sumac wax was soft and easy to form into the shape of a candle and so by the 16th century it had become the standard material for candle-making in Japan.
