  • 08:50 Meet at Kissa Kiharu
  • 09:00 Oko Incense Workshop (~45 minutes)
  • Coloration
    school10_02 First choose the color you like from red, blue, or yellow. These base powders give the Oko incense its color, and are made from tree bark and other dyes. Next add some water and mix. A yellow base is pictured,
  • Mixing
    3 Mix the powder and water with a traditional pestle, to ensure an even spread. Little children will need a parent's help.
  • Scent
    3 Once mixed, choose the scent you like from five choices and put it in the mixing bowl, then make a dough with your hands.
  • Rolling
    3 Roll out the dough, fold it over, and continue this to make an even colored and smooth base.
  • Shaping
    3 Normally shaped into cones only, during this workshop you can create a variety of shapes out of your incense, making it fun to look at and fragrant!
  • Completion
    3 After all of your Oko incense is shaped, put them in a box to take home with you. It will need to be dried for 3-4 days in your home. After that, your very own original Oko is complete!
