These high-grade incense sticks give off the profound fragrance of kurobō, a mix of agarwood and sandalwood, and are made using incense blending techniques passed down and developed since the Heian-period (794-1185 CE). Kyūkyodō, the company that produces these incense sticks, has been operating for centuries, and during some of its history was a supplier of incense to the Imperial Court. Kyūkyodō is proud of this heritage and closely protects the long-established methods and scents that distinguish its products. The fragrance of this incense is one of the so called Mukusa no Takimono, the six scents, that have been in use since the Heian-period, with each one representing a season or a particular time of the year. The sweet yet slightly astringent smell of kurobō represents many auspicious occasions throughout the four seasons.
