Omori Japanese Candle shop (大森和ろうそく屋)
Omori Japanese Candle is a shop selling traditional Japanese wax candles, located in Uchiko Town, where the wax-making and Washi (traditional Japanese hand-made paper) industries flourished during the Edo and Meiji periods. A section of a wax candle made in the traditional way (which has been handed down for over 200 years) shows a ring-like pattern; with no coloring or decorative motifs, the candles have a simple beauty. These are long-lasting candles that produce little soot and don’t suffer from dripping wax. The candles have attracted a great deal of interest in other countries, and are featured on the website of the British Museum. Omori Japanese Candle is located around 15 minutes’ walk from Uchiko Station.
