Japan is one of the oldest incense producing countries. Incense arrived in Japan when Buddhist monks first came to the country from China. Incense is an important part of Buddhism; it is used in ceremonies and rites to purify the atmosphere. It became more popular when people realized that it created an ambiance and a sense of tranquility in a room. In the 14th century, samurai warriors used to use incense to perfume their helmets and armor, believing that it would create an aura of invincibility. Incense became more popular in the 15th and 16th centuries, when middle and upper classes in Japan started using it as a part of their daily lives.
To use incense you need an incense burner which will stand it in and catch all the ashes. To start it, all you need to do, is light up the tip of the incense stick, coil or cone and then blow the flames out. You will get a small line of smoke which will release the aroma. Once the ash collects, you need to removes the ashes from the incense burner and keep it clean.
