Feel the magnificent aura of the one of the oldest cherry tree in Japan with this high quality Nippon Kodo incense sticks!
The scent is inspired by one of the greatest and oldest cherry tree of Japan – USUZUMI ZAKURA (淡墨桜). Located in the beautiful mountains of Gifu Prefecture Usuzumi Zakura is over 1,500 years old! The tree is said to have been planted in person by Emperor Keitai in the 6th century. The name Usuzumi Zakura means “pale grey cherry blossom”, which describes the very light grey colour of the tree blossoms just as they are about to fall. This unique cherry tree initially sprouts pale pink flowers, which become pure white in full bloom, finally changing to pale grey before falling to the ground.
Clear floral notes of this charming Cherry Blossom fragrance gives a nice, soothing effect. Box of 60 g high quality traditional Japanese incense. Very popular in Japan.
