Walking into Becky Candle in Yokohama is kind of like climbing into a box of assorted sweets. The cute shop is tucked away on a side street not far from Motomachi Station, and is packed with colors, scents and pretty decorations. It’s divided up into two different workshop areas: the perfumery table is where you’ll mix your very own home fragrance, and the center table is where you’ll decorate a ready-made candle and also create your ice-cream sundae candle. You can pop in any time, no reservations needed, and owner Masahiko Matsuo and his assistants are on hand to guide you through the steps.
– Perfumer Workshop: ¥4,000 for 50ml and ¥5,000 for 120ml.
– Candle Decorating: from ¥2,000 depending on which candle you choose.
– Sundae Candle: from ¥1,200 to ¥2,500 depending on the size of the glass container you choose.
