The candle of our workshop was selected as a gift for the world leaders at the Ise-Shima Summit in 2016.
We produce genuine handmade Japanese candles using traditional manufacturing methods developed in the Edo era (17th-19thcentury). Our candles are characterized by delicate lines, beautiful growth ring patterns, and a large, bright, gently flickering flame.
Welcome to the alluring world of soothing light created by genuine Japanese candles.
Our decorated candle was selected as a gift for world leaders at the Ise-Shima Summit in 2016.
Genuine Japanese candles from Matsui Candle Atelier
We define our candles as genuine Japanese traditional candles because they include only natural Japan wax, in contrast to most Japanese candles that contain chemical materials.
Use of natural materials only
The optimum material, sumac wax, minimizes dripping and produces little soot.
Our candles are not easily extinguished by the wind.
Criteria of genuine Japanese candles
・The use of guaranteed natural Japan wax only.
・Beautiful growth-ring patterns created through the manual and repeated layering of wax.
