The Mishima Candle Shop in Furukawa has stood for over 240 years selling authentic Japanese candles or
Warosoku. The candle store is only a five minute walk away from the train station and is housed in Furukawa's old town's traditional building for a truly authentic feel. The candles are 100% hand-made with vegetable matter using traditional candle-making techniques. There are candle making demonstrations at select times of the day for guests to see just how meticulous the process is. Only a handful of masters in Japan can make candles in this manner, and the candles are said to produce less smoke and burn brighter than standard western candles.
Hand made and held to the highest of standards, the Mishima Candle Shop is currently under the care of Mr. Junji Mishima. This master craftsman works diligently to produce high quality candles for your enjoyment. Add a stop to the Mishima Candle Shop during your next Japan tour to see how much care and attention goes into making each candle!
