About "anti mosquito incense burner" (katorisenko - 蚊取り線香) :
In summer, Japanese use traditional mosquito repellent coils called katorisenko. It's a special type of incense made with a chrysanthemum and which produces a smoke that keeps away mosquitoes. Japanese have also developed a special burner for the katorisenko, most often in the shape of a pig. It's a symbol of the long summer evenings.
