Tanuki Koro, Japanese Granite Incense Burner - Burning incense is a very common phenomenon in Japan. It is seen as a spiritual act and a sign of respect. Most people use incense burners, Kōro (香炉) in Japanese, for this. These incense burners need to be filled with sand or ash, after which the incense can be put in.
