Maki / Podocarpus Macrophyllus, 5”, app. 180 Sticks
Mount Koya (高野山, Kōyasan) is the center of Shingon Buddhism, an important Buddhist sect which was introduced to Japan in 805 by Kobo Daishi (also known as Kukai), one of Japan's most significant religious figures. A small, secluded temple town has developed around the sect's headquarters that Kobo Daishi built on Koyasan's wooded mountaintop. It is also the site of Kobo Daishi's mausoleum and the start and end point of the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage. (This infromotion is from Japan-guide.com)
The wood for this incense comes from an evergreen tree called Podocarpus Macrophyllus, which is native to areas south of the equator, and countries such as Australia. It is found in nurseries in North America and is frequently called a Fern Pine.
Koyasan Daishido produces the traditional incense at Mount Koya (高野山, Kōyasan).
