“Nanao” candles are designed with a curved-line motif inspired by the shapes of the fauna of the Noto Peninsula, including bamboo, nuts and plants.

There are five different candles, all with a motif of a different plant that grows in the Noto Peninsula. The candles are all named after a letter of the word "plant".

These candles keep to the original materials and procedures used in making Japanese candles while incorporating a modern design. We hope you will enjoy the softly-swaying flame.

They are best suited to the Takazawa medium Koma Cast Iron Candle Holder, or our Traditional Japanese Cast Iron Candle Holder.
