This incense holder set was made by a world-famous Japanese designer who combined incense from the over 400-year-old city of Sakai in Osaka Prefecture and Arita porcelain from Saga Prefecture in Kyushu. The natural and mellow incense is prepared from the rare high-quality aromatic agarwood tree.
The design from incense to holder to packaging was created by Ken Okuyama Design, led by Kiyoyuki Okuyama, the industrial designer known as the only non-Italian to have ever designed a Ferrari. The Arita porcelain incense holder, which has a unique lazuline color, gives off such a strong presence that it could be used as an interior objet all by itself. It is included with the jinko incense in an attractive box, making it the perfect gift.
