Koh-do workshop

Koh-do (traditional Japanese incense) is an art form that developed in Kyoto more than 500 years ago. The art form, which values Zen teachings, is performed in the mental realm by appreciating the natural fragrance of an aromatic tree called Agarwood. The Shino Incense School has passed down the teachings of its founder, Shino Soshin, for twenty generations, and the School has spread beyond Japan as well. There are now places to study its teachings in Paris, Boston, Beijing, etc.
