Kameyama Wagashi Sweets Candles and Incense Set
Seasonal Japanese confectionery-inspired decorative candles and incense sticks
Wagashi are seasonal Japanese sweets invariably made of anko (red bean paste), practically the only filling that was available in Japan before it opened to the rest of the world in the late 19th century. What really makes the wagashi exceptional, though, isn't so much the filling inside as how they look on the outside: traditional Japanese confectioners carve out miniature sculptures with amazing colors that you can't believe are made to be eaten. Of course, in the case of Kameyama Wagashi Sweets Candles and Incense Set, the sweets are certainly NOT to be eaten, since they are actually mini candles shaped like wagashi!
The Kameyama Wagashi Sweets Candles and Incense Set contains five of these candles and, like regular wagashi, you may want to keep them just as they are, they are that pretty! To compensate, Kameyama, who has been making candles in Japan for almost a century, also bundles the candles with three packs of its best incense sticks, one each of its three most popular fragrances: hydrangea, cherry blossom, and fragrant olive. A great way to enjoy (or get introduced to) classic Japanese aesthetics that comes in a beautiful box you can keep on using after the candles and incense are gone!
