Kyoto Flowers Assortment
Omiyage or "local product gift" is a common form of gift giving in Japan. Just as a relative in America might buy you a t-shirt for a gift from a far away locale they visited, this concept is embraced in Japan, but not for cheap kitsch, rather as an attempt to offer something truly memorable from the region visited.
We couldn't think of a better choice for an Omiyage than this box of incense cones, inspired by the many flowers found to bloom around Kyoto. This sample set comes in a beautifully decorated wooden box featuring two incense cones for each flower, twelve flowers in all -
1. Violet, 2. Chrysanthemum, 3. Wistaria, 4. Pine, 5. Sandalwood, 6.Jonquil (Narcissus), 7. Iris, 8. Plum, 9. Lotus, 10. Maple, 11. Rose & 12. Cherry.
Whether looking for a wonderful collection to brighten up your home, or a quick sensory Omiyage that sceams Kyoto in the spring, know that you can confidently share this box and rest easy, that it won't end up as a gym t-shirt or cleaning rag.
Works well in medium to large rooms. Each cone has a burn time of about 7 -10 minutes.
