Kousaido Incense – Sumi Charcoal
Made in Japan
30 incense sticks in kiri wood box
Stick length: 7cm
Burn time: 15 – 17minutes
A refreshing scent inspired by Sumi (墨, calligraphy ink). A clear and musky scent based on ryunou, which is a crystallized resin that exudes from a tree called borneol, gives off a slightly spicy and woody aroma. This incense is popular with people who enjoy warm and smooth sandalwood scents.
The incense sticks come beautifully wrapped in a white paper carefully stored in a kiri (paulownia) wood box that is perfect for storage.

Kousaido was founded in 1994, born out of the concept of “colouring your life with incense.”
For all their incense, traditional sandalwood is used as the base. A wide range of scents are layered together with the sandalwood, creating a mellow aroma out of more characteristically sharp scents.
