Japanese incense has been used to purify, cleanse, and unwind for other a thousand years. During this time it has come to be seen as one of the highest quality incense varieties in the world.
Incense culture is even referred to in The Tale of Genji (Genji Monogatari), a famous Japanese classic that depicted courtly life during the Heian Period (794-1185 CE). In the novel, some of the characters play an incense game that was popular at the time, and for many centuries since, in which participants tried to guess the type of incense by scent alone. Incense game sets later became so popular they were a common part of the wedding dowry of daimyo families.
