Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


Takazawa Candle's candles are handcrafted according to a 16th-century tradition using pure vegetable sumac wax and a wick made from washi paper and dried cane.

There are five different candles, each with a motif inspired by a different plant that grows on the Noto Peninsula.

Takazawa candles are known in Japan for their particularly bright and strong flame. This is because the wick's hollow core draws in oxygen from below, increasing combustion efficiency and creating a strong flame. Thanks to the use of natural, plant-based waxes, Takazawa candles burn fragrance-free with minimal smoke development.

Since the candles are made from natural sumac wax, their color scale ranges in muted tones from off-white to gray and beige.

For these candles the candle holder Koma M fits.

Founded in 1892, Takazawa Candle is one of the oldest candle heart makers in Japan. The manufactory produces traditional candles, also known as Warousoku, from purely plant-based raw materials. The production of the candles is based on a technique that has not changed since the 16th century.


I was inspired for the Takazawa Candles for the first time in 2016 when I attended a yoga session for the first time. A Japanese candle was always lit for each hour. I found it so special that these candles are still an integral part of my morning, meditation and yoga routine to this day. The naturalness of the candles has something calming and triggers a special mood in me.
