Hoshiban E-rousoku (painted candles) Shop

Enjoy painting candles at a long-established Aizu Clan Shop

Our store was established in 1772, and has long been a purveyor of Aizu Clan goods. The paintings feature bright, beautiful colors; we specialize in e-rousoku (painted candles). Patterns such as chrysanthemum and mountain peonies are painted by hand; the techniques have been handed down from parent to child for generations. The store also has a studio, where you can enjoy a painting class. (*reservation required) You can create your own original work as a souvenir for your trip. It is fine to only take the production tour.
