The "Tohaku" Candle is an homage to ‘The Pine Trees screen’, drawn by Tohaku Hasegawa, one of the most famous painters in Japan.

The pine trees in the paintings are of the landscape of Nanao City, and he drew it while recollecting his memories of the beautiful nature of his childhood home.

The flame is an extension of the gentle lines of these trees, reminding you of a rustic simplicity.
