The real deal. Baieido has been making incense for more than 300 years and is one of the oldest companies of its kind in Japan. Established in 1657, the founder named himself, ‘Jinkoya Sakubei’, Jinkoya meaning 'Aloeswood trader' in the ancient port of Sakai. His methods and recipes have been handed down from generation to generation in an unbroken, secret oral tradition. Today, the Baieido range includes both traditional as well as modern blends - all still hand-made.
