Koh-shi is word for the person in charge of the entire process of incense making, from the mixing stage to the bundling stage. In other words, a koh-shi is an incense master.
Awaji Island incense is born from traditional incense manufacturing methods, strict quality management and the skill and pride of the koh-shi. This is the deep world of incense that simply can not be imitated by modern mass production methods.
Incense began to be manufactured about 160 years ago, in 1850, on Awaji Island. The Awaji Island Koh-shi, “Incense Masters”, have maintained the quality of Awaji Island incense, which has been cherished throughout its long history and tradition. The Koh-shi have charge of the entire process of incense manufacturing, from the mixing stage to the creation stage, while overseeing the quality of all products. The “Japanese Fragrance Series” features incense created with pride by the 14 Awaji Island Koh-shi, who are committed to maintaining the high quality of traditional Awaji Island incense.
