Chikuseiko incense is a product of Kohchosai Kosuga, which specializes in creating bamboo crafts that enrich lives and are essential in the three major performing arts of Japan: sado (tea ceremony), kado (flower arrangement), and kodo (traditional incense ceremony). The company was founded by the Edo-era painter Kocho Ueda and soon became a purveyor to the imperial family and court families. Today all of its products are made at a studio that has been exclusively affiliated with Kohchosai Kosuga for decades.
