Fans of Japanese culture will immediately love the Okome no Rosoku Rice Candles: just the very fact that these candles are made of rice and are one more proof that the Japanese will use rice for everything is enough to make any Japanophile order a pack. And the same goes for all those who love Japan for its weirdness: candles made of rice? What will they think next?! But there's more to this than just the novelty: these are very high-quality candles, and precisely because they are made of rice!
Since the 20 candles in the set contain only wax that comes from rice bran, they don't drip and their smoke doesn't have that oiliness you can find with regular paraffin candles. They also don't contain any fragrance or artificial coloring. All you get are 76 mm (3") candles of 100% pure vegetable wax that burn for about 40 minutes, leaving the air in your space as clear as it was before you lit them. And they come with an elegant black or white candlestick so you can use them right out of the box!
