Daiyo

Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. The artisanship of making traditional Japanese candles has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Daiyo’s candles are handmade from 100% natural plant wax, and the principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since the company was established more than a century ago. 

Each piece is hand made by the master craftsmen using 100% natural materials. The Japanese candle wick is hollow made of Washi-paper, rush weeds and silk fibres. They burn stably and beautifully with a larger flame than the conventional western candles.
