A set of six traditional Japanese candles made with 100% natural Sumac wax.

It is said that there are only ten craftsmen in the world who have the skills to produce this type of candle, and they have a smokeless burn with wax that doesn’t drip.

A spiked candle stand is required with these traditional candles. Pairs beautifully with our small iron candle stand or our Geometric candle holder. Burn time: 40 minutes per candle.


These Japanese candle wicks are hollow - made from Washi paper, rush weeds and silk fibres. This technique creates a larger, yet softer, flame than traditional western-made candles. Almost feather-like in its gentleness, the flame is the candle for these Japanese craftsmen. The flame creates the ambience - and an emotion that is not possible with electric light. There is an exquisite balance in the form of the candle, the shape of the flame and the way it flickers and burns. Use them for quiet moments of reflection or to add a pop of interest to any room.

Product Care

Japanese candles burn with a large, bright flame. It is recommended to cut the black burned wick with a trimmer to adjust the size of the flame.

Caution: Do not place flammable materials near or above the candle. Keep the candle away from direct sunlight and wind. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Meet the Artisan



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.
