Baikundo is a respected incense maker from Awaji Island, in Japan. Awaji Island is one of Japan’s two traditional homes of incense, and today accounts for over 70% of domestic incense manufacturing.

Baikundo has been making incense sticks since 1850, and makes a wide variety of incense for various purposes with a focus on using natural ingredients.

The Forest and Plum varieties of Baikundo incense that Japanese Taste carries are made with charcoal to clean, purify and cleanse the air. Their Hatsuume variety features refreshing natural plum rose oils applied to a fragrant sandalwood stick, to ensure a calming and pleasant aroma.
