painted japanese candles as decoration? 2012/9/2 18:44
my aussie friend bought me these pretty japanese candles
as seen here,

I guess they are used in a butsudan, but not sure ...

Can I just use them as ordinary candles for decorative purposes in my room? or would my Japanese friends think me odd?!
Thanks in advance!

No problem.
Japanese candles called "wa-rousoku" are never restricted to use for religion only.
They cast a strong and beautiful light, and not make room dirty so much than generic candles.
So Japanese like to used in front of the costly "butsudan" that plated with gold.
