Nukubai heals loneliness and brings a peace of mind from the warmth of ash. Featuring an masterful blend of Sandalwood, Patchouli, Tobacco, and Vanilla. The characters of its name 温灰 can be interpreted as "the warm ash."

Take a moment to light the incense. Let the fragrance quietly infuse the air. Watch the ash fall and surrender to the passing of time. Take delight in the moment as the fragrance slowly envelops you. It will leave an imprint in your memory.

Dial in all five senses to the invisible fragrance. Allow your senses to be drawn into the transcendent world of incense and witness how the fragrance takes on a visible form.

Each incense is a blend of natural aromatic materials, packed in a wooden tray with 40 sticks and a specially designed metal burner. 

The five fragrances (木 Moku, 火 Ka, 土 Do, 金 Kon, 水 Sui) are inspired by the “Ten Virtues of Koh” blended with the ancient Chinese belief of the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Nukubai represents Earth.

The “Ten Virtues of Koh” was written by a Japanese monk about six hundred years ago that extols the benefits derived from the properties of incense. In ancient China, it was believed that every place, person and object in the universe was made from these five elements: Moku, Ka, Do, Kon and Sui.

Nippon Kodo's aim is to give their customers precious meditation time and genuine peace of mind through fragrance. We are more than pleased to offer this exceptional line from our favorite purveyor of Japanese incense.
