The Long History of Shoyeido Incense
Legend has it that incense was first developed after a piece of agarwood drifted up onto Japan’s shore 1,400 years ago. Because the wood smelled so good, it was brought to the empress. Burning this wood produced an interest in fragrance that eventually morphed into the formulation of the first incense in Japan. It was in the 18th Century that Rokubei Moritsune took the incense-making techniques he had learned in the Imperial Palace and started the company that would become Shoyeido. Since those early beginnings, Shoyeido has remained faithful to the original concept of their incense – to produce aromatic, refreshing, completely natural incense for the world to enjoy.
