Kougou (or kogo) is a small, decorative vessel used to burn incense during a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, at a temple, or in the home.

This kougou is porcelain, hand painted, and depicting a kakjiku - hanging scroll - that has been rolled and bound. The decorating that creates a textile pattern, gold cording, and even the painted ends of the scroll are delicately done.

The top fits precisely into the base, which has a smaller scooped out area where the incense would rest.

See video below for a demonstration of Kodo, the traditional Japanese incense ceremony. It doesn't feature kougou boxes, unfortunately, but it is still worth viewing.
