Shop Information

In 1594, Kungyokudo was opened in front of Nishihongwanji temple as a chemist. The shop is still running its business at the same place today. From that time, we have sold incense to the temples and head temples of each school of Buddhism across Japan. With more than 420 years history of heritage, Kungyokudo produce unique and gentle scents in keeping with our tradition as the leading old Kyoto incense business.
