On lighting a flame
"In prayer, in conversation, in self reflection, the candle subtly changes its expression in response, in feather like gentleness and ethereal warmth. The flame emanates an emotion not possible with electrical lights in our daily lives. “From Monologue to dialogue” is a principle theme at Daiyo, as we constantly contemplate the innate powers of the light of a candle flame, and how human relations are derived and created from it. We will continue making candles of the highest quality in order to pass down the closely-knit relationship between flame and humans that we have weaved since generations ago". -Daiyo
Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. The artisanship has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Shiga prefecture is home to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, and an abundance of natural resources. Consequently, Shiga has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the coexistence of man and nature. Daiyo’s Japanese candles are 100% made from natural plant wax. Daiyo's principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since their establishment more than a century ago.
