  • History

    The city of Nanao, in Ishikawa Prefecture, flourished as a port of call for Kitamae "Northbound ships" due to its excellent natural port in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).

    Takazawa Candle was established in 1892. Today, They are the only candle maker who keeps this tradition alive in Nanao.

  • The making of

    To make a traditional Japanese candle, they start with the candle's wick. The wick is made by winding dried rushes around a hollow cord of washi (Japanese paper). The hollow core of the wick allows oxygen to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus increasing the combustion power and creating a powerful flame.

  • Aesthetic

    Their candles' flames are bigger and brighter than other companies. The flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century, and it is the symbol of ancestral wisdom. Back then, there were no electric lights, light meant candles, and a lot of thought was put into making candlelight brighter.
