The Tohaku candle is made from wax which comes from the fruit of the Japanese Haze tree in the Chikugo region of Kyushu.

Each wick is made by wrapping a dried reed around a washi (Japanese paper) cylinder which is yet another beautiful fine detail with these candles.

The conservation of the Haze tree is in good hands with a Haze tree planting program in Chikugo which the Tohaku candle maker is prominently involved with to insure following generations of candle makers can carry on the fine art of traditional candle making.

From natures beautiful bounty to the people that harvest the wax and the people who dedicate themselves to making the candles, enjoy being part of the circle by lighting a memorable Tohaku candle.
