DAIYO

LIGHTING A FLAME 

In prayer, in conversation, in self reflection, the candle subtly changes its expression in response, in feather like gentleness and ethereal warmth. The flame emanates an emotion not possible with electrical lights in our daily lives. “From Monologue to dialogue” is a principle theme at Daiyo, as we constantly contemplate the innate powers of the light of a candle flame, and how human relations are derived and created from it. We will continue making candles of the highest quality in order to pass down the closely-knit relationship between flame and humans that we have weaved since generations ago.

The artisanship has been passed down across four generations already, Daiyo is born in Shiga Prefecture in 1914.
Shiga  is well know for the Lake Biwa, the  largest lake in Japan.
The candles are 100% handmade from natural plant wax.
The principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since the establishment of the company more than a century ago.
