Kampo is the ancient art and practice of natural medicine using a combination of Asian herbs and roots. This incense is made using prescriptions of Kampo ingredients that have been kneaded in the incense along with the essential oils that match the symptoms. It is not a medicine, but it helps to improve the condition. In addition to the deep scent of Kampo, you can expect an aromatherapy effect from the natural oil.

Cold & Flu Treatment: A light and gentle herbal scent from a combination of natural oils and the deep scent of the traditional herbal and root Kampo medicines. The main scent is Lavender oil, which is known to be an all around healing plant. The scent alone will not cure your cold but it will aid in relaxation which helps your body to rest and recover.

Hay Fever: A relaxing soft scent from a combination of natural oils and the deep scent of the traditional herbal and root Kampo medicines. The main scent is sandalwood, ginger, and peony, which all have a calming relaxing effect. The scent alone will not cure your Hay Fever but it will aid in relaxation of your throat which helps your body to rest and recover.

Diet: An exotic and graceful herbal scent using a combination of natural oils and the deep scent of the traditional herbal and root Kampo medicines. The scent of sandalwood is clean and calming, so it is said to keep you from drinking and eating much.

Incense came to Japan with Buddhism from China. After arriving in Japan and being used in ceremonies, the experience of scent took on new forms. Samurai warriors would prepare for battle by purifying their minds and bodies with the incense and developed an appreciation for its fragrances. For nobility at court, there was a game they enjoyed where they would smell incense and guess what ingredients it was made from. Incense also became a way to perfume not only your environment, but used as a perfume for clothes and hair. Eventually incense became accessible to other classes, while always being revered as something extremely precious. This developed into an incense-smelling ceremony called Kodo or, “The Way of Fragrance”.

We still enjoy incense in this way. You You Ang comes from the Japanese words, “youyou-jiteki” which means to act naturally without any restraints and to live with a relaxed feeling. It is for those who wish to take little of time to enjoy a moment with yourself, or to share with loved ones, with the belief that incense, “Makes time to clean your heart”.

You You Ang’s incense continues to be produced in the birthplace of incense, Awaji Island.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
