The Quality of Less Smoke
Kōdō (香道, Way of Incense) is the Japanese art of appreciating incense, similar to the tea ceremony, in which participants follow established practises involving the preparation and enjoyment of incense.Though it is counted as one of the three classical arts of refinement, it is relatively unknown amongst modern Japanese people. Kōdō includes all aspects of the incense process – from the tools (kōdōgu (香道具)), which, much like tools of the tea ceremony, are valued as high art, to activities such the incense-comparing games kumikō and genjikō.
Apart from kōdō, incense can also be used during the tea ceremony or other functions. A variety of containers and censers, or kōro, made out of porcelain, wood, lacquer or other materials were created over the centuries for this purpose, such as kōgō, and kōbako, all of which can be supremely valuable items.

A lot of people use it as the one incense they burn at home; and for many it has been the one that introduced them to the world of incense.
Kataribe Hinoki is reliable and elegant enough, much more so than many incenses in its price range. Less imposing than the Indian incenses, like Nag Champa, usually used in yoga centers.
There’s a slight powdery quality to the fragrance that I wouldn’t want filling a room, but the thin, short sticks prevent that, unless you’re burning multiple sticks or sitting very close.
