Our Kohgen Ueno Sakuragi store is one of Japan's leading incense speciality stores, with more than 5000 products including incense, fragrant wood, rosaries and bracelets.
Including our original incense, we also stock products from incense manufacturers from all over Japan. At incense stores, you can’t always try the fragrance there; however, at our store, you can sample incenses that you’re interested in, free of charge.
Enjoy yourself as you search for your perfect fragrance, from traditional Japanese incenses to flowers or Western styles. Our incense concierge is filled with knowledge of all scents, and can help you choose.
In addition, we have an Incense Museum on the 2nd floor, where perfumed pillows from the Edo period and collections of rare incense goods are on display. We also have educational spaces where you can experience Japanese incense culture, such as a corner where you can test the ingredients of incense.
We’re looking forward to your visit.
