Fifteen minutes of intentional relaxation—for meditation, stretching, or even just to enjoy a conversation and a cup of coffee.
Warousoku Daiyo artisans meticulously craft every candle by hand using a technique called “Tegake"—a procedure in which the wax is applied on the wick by hand and dried, with the process being repeated several times.
This process and the natural materials create no smoke, scent, or dripping while burning.
The accompanying candle stand rounds this out as a perfect gift.
Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. The artisanship has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Shiga prefecture is home to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, and an abundance of natural resources.
Consequently, Shiga has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the coexistence of man and nature. Daiyo’s Japanese candles are 100% made from natural plant wax. Our principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since our establishment more than a century ago.
