History of Japanese Incense: Over 1,400 years ago, a large piece of fragrant wood drifted ashore on the tiny Japanese island of Awaji. Realizing the unique and marvelous fragrance emanating from the wood, island locals presented it as a gift to the Empress Suiko. With this gift of rare and precious agarwood began a new era of refinement of, and appreciation for, the enjoyment of fragrance. In the early 18th century, Rokubei Moritsune Hata began incorporating techniques of creating incense he learned as an employee of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto, Japan. He would eventually introduce a new world of scent to an audience beyond the realm of royalty.
