The KOME-NO-MEGUMI candles from Takazawa Candle come in a set of 20 pieces.
KOME-NO-MEGUMI means the blessing of rice. These candles are made from rice bran wax, a vegetable wax extracted from rice, the staple food in Japan. They only take 30 minutes to burn out - a kind of timer, but one where you never feel rushed.

Takazawa Candle has been making traditional Japanese candles since 1892, keeping three elements in mind: craftsmanship, raw materials and ethics. Made with a hollow core, the candles have a powerful flame, and its flickering is more unique than others. Each candle is meant to create time for yourself. Light them after coming home, while enjoying dinner or to calm mind and body during a yoga and meditation session.

KOME-NO-MEGUMI candles each burn 30 minutes and are suitable for KOMA Candle Stand S.

Takazawa Candle

Takazawa Candle has been making candles since 1892.
The first candles in Japan were brought in from China in the 8th century and were made from bees wax. This material wasn't familiar to the ancestors, so they tried to make candles from plant based wax. By the 16th century, sumac wax had become the standard material for candle-making in Japan. Exploring different plant based ingredients, Takazawa Candle also uses other materials such as rapeseed oil wax and rice bran wax.

The sumac wax from Kyushu region and Japanese paper (wa-shi) from Iwami in Shimane Prefecture, used for wicks, were brought to Nanao to produce candles. The finished product was then transported throughout Japan by Kitamae ship. There were many guilds in Nanao until the late 19th century. Today, Takazawa Candle is the only candle maker keeping this tradition alive in Nanao. By continuing to use natural materials, they contribute to the survival of traditional technologies and to the conservation of the Japanese mountains, plants and nature.

The first candles in Japan were brought in from China in the 8th century and were made from bees wax. This material wasn't familiar to the ancestors, so they tried to make candles from plant based wax. 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.

The sumac wax from Kyushu region and Japanese paper (wa-shi) from Iwami in Shimane Prefecture, used for wicks, were brought to Nanao to produce candles.

Nice to see you here,

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
