Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. The artisanship has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Shiga prefecture is home to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, and an abundance of natural resources. Consequently, Shiga has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the coexistence of man and nature. Daiyo’s Japanese candles are 100% made from natural plant wax. The compan's principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since our establishment more than a century ago.
By utilizing 100% local and natural plant wax, the Daiyo artisans meticulously craft all candles by hand. By using a sustainable resource, their Japanese candles made for home-use do not produce smoke, nor does the melted wax flow out of the candle. The candles have almost zero odour when burning. Environmental friendliness is a key feature of Daiyo’s Japanese candles.
