Description​ ​

Let's enjoy a special time at Daisho-in which is considered to be the oldest temple in Miyajima of Aki.​ ​

"Kodo" (Incense burning) is an example of Japanese Geido (art) that appreciate the fragrance rising from Koboku (fragrant wood) burned according to traditional rituals.​ ​
It is also called "ko-asobi" means a game with incense, when several types of incense are offered to participants to guess.​ ​​ ​

Each type of incenses has a title related to seasons or celebrations and in this game players must distinguish and differentiate various types of incense on scent. It is more important to enjoy the aroma than to win or lose.​ ​

After kodo game, you can enjoy matcha tea with traditional sweets.
From ancient times there is a specific meaning in etiquette of drinking tea and eating sweets.​ ​
After a detailed explanation by the instructor, we believe that your match tea and sweets bring more joy.

Kōdō is counted as one of the three Japanese Arts of Refinement (Geido).​ ​
In addition to a kodo game, trying matcha-tea with traditional sweets would make you sense the elegance.​ ​

The course is conducted by an instructor Kosai Yamasaki, an expert with 50 years of experience at Daisho-in kodo school.​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​

Kodo — a Japanese traditional experience

The history of kodo can be traced back to Empress Suiko's reign (595 CE). The Buddhism played a key role in the development of kodo.
Since Daisho-in is the equal of Ninna-ji Temple of Kyoto, Kodo has been introduced in Daisho-in early, then spread out around Hiroshima.​ ​
In addition to unique etiquette regarding the preparation of incense, kodo tools and their storage boxes called “Midarebako” and “Hishibon” are worth seeing.

Relaxing time over matcha-tea with traditional sweets

After the game with scents, you will have a relaxing time over matcha-tea with traditional sweets.​ ​​ ​
Take sweets first, then drink tea for the better taste.​ ​
Traditional sweets are usually served on kaishi (double-folded paper), the meaning of double-folding, the etiquette of how to divide a piece of sweets before putting it into your mouth,​ ​
how to hold a tea bowl, how to drink and so on.
We will explain each manner and its meaning step by step.​ ​​ ​

Matters require attention ★ Flow of Kodo ★
① The assistant will cut the koboku (fragrant wood) to small pieces, then put them in sachets.
※ All wrapped fragrances look same, that makes them indistinguishable.
② Shuffle the sachets, then put them in the incense burner randomly.
③ Pass around the incense burner, and everyone should listen to each burner and write the answer on the paper. In kodo Japanese say “listening” to the incense, not “smelling” it.
④ Please hand in your answer sheet.
⑤ We will announce the correct answer in the end.
