About Shoyeido

Shoyeido was established around 300 years ago in 1705 by the Hata family. Twelve generations later, the Hata family has continued to perfect the art of Japanese incense, creating a beautiful array of fragrances all while maintaining the traditions, art and ancestry of Japanese Incense, known as Koh. Today, A labour of love, Shoyeido is considered to be the highest quality, most natural incense available in the world. 

Shoyeido offers a wide variety of incense for all occasions; praying in a religious setting, for special activities such as tea ceremonies, or to simply scent a room. Shoyeido’s varieties range from stick incense to aromatic wood chips, kneaded incense, pressed incense, and sachets.
