Mosquitoes are a pest in the humid Japanese summer. This is a way to keep the pesky buzzing bugs away and in a retro design that has now become a classic. The Kincho Uzumaki Katori Senko Mosquito Coil is one of the archetypal icons of the summer in Japan, its proud rooster logo as famous as the green coils themselves and the charming fragrance they give off.
Kincho was the first company to develop a spiral-shaped mosquito-repellent incense. The status of the Kincho mosquito coils is such that the brand received the Good Design Long Life Award from the Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in 2012.
The effective insecticide owes its origins to Pyrethrum flower seeds, first obtained from Serbia. This is the practical can version of the green mosquito coils, containing 30 coils. Light the end and the incense will burn slowly, killing mosquitos and leaving you to enjoy the summer in peace.
