Shoyeido Incense - Horikawa 堀川 (River Path)
Made from a recipe perfected by Shoyeido's master incense crafters over 30 years ago, River Path remains one of Shoyeido’s most popular incense scents. A perfect, transcendent blend of cinnamon and frankincense to tantalize the senses.
20 incense sticks + 1 biodegradable incense holder
Measures 2.75” (each stick)
Approx. burn time - 20 mins per stick
Note: Because these lack the filler-stick, they‘re more brittle than commercial incense sticks many are familiar with. It is important to handle with care.
"Shoyeido" is derived from the three characters: Sho, Yei and Do. Sho means "Pine tree"; Yei is the ancient sound meaning "Prosperity"; and Do is a store or company. In their traditional grading system, the Japanese routinely used sho (pine tree), chiku (bamboo), and bai (plum tree), to represent varying degrees of quality. In this grading system, sho (pine-tree) represents the highest grade or quality.
