Origin of Brand Name
Cohana is derived from the diety“Konohanasakuyahime” in Japanese mythology. She is as beautiful as a blooming cherry blossom tree, and worshipped as a guardian deity of Mount Fuji, which symbolizes Japan.
Cohana's Basic 5 Colors
Japanese traditional colors show the beauty of the Japanese sense of color.
Plants, trees, flowers... rich nature and things around life... Japanese people have sensed the various colors in the changing seasons, named and embraced them in our daily lives.
These five colors are used as the basic colors of Cohana.
In addition to the five basic colors, we also sell seasonal products with colors based on special themes.
