Takazawa Candle Co.

Takazawa Candle has been making candles since 1892. Located in the port city of Nanao, sumac wax from the Kyushu region along with Japanese paper (wa-shi) from Iwami are used to produce candles. While candle guilds used to be prolific in this area, Takazawa Candle is the last remaining candle maker in the region.
