What it makes the Nousaku Tin Mosquito Coil Stand really, well, stand out isn't its shape or the ingenious way for holding your mosquito repellent coils in a way that allows them to burn completely while containing all the ashes. Not that this wouldn't be enough, but there's another aspect that you come to appreciate when you hear that this 100% tin item is the product of a centuries-old tradition of metalworking from the city of Takaoka in Japan's Toyama Prefecture!
The craftspeople in Takaoka have been working with metal since the time of the samurai. But they also know that only through combining their craft with modern design can they keep it relevant. The Nousaku Tin Mosquito Coil Stand is one such result of this mindset and is a superb example of functionality, aesthetics, and tradition all rolled into one. It is small enough (77 x 160 x 50 mm, 3 x 6.2 x 1.9") to fit almost anywhere and works with basically any mosquito coil. Protect yourself from bugs while admiring the amazing artisanal work that has gones into this beautiful item.
