Traditionalists consider only binchotan produced in Kishu, Tosa, and Hyuga as authentic binchotan. Their density and thermal power are significantly different.

Premium Kishu Binchotan: 15kg Pack - Made in Japan

Binchotan charcoal from the Kishu province of Japan (紀州備長炭), also known as Wakayama white charcoal, is the premium version of Japanese white charcoal. Some people use it as a water purifier.

Traditionalists always insist that only binchotan produced in the following regions of Japan can truly be called binchotan:

The difference in results can be significant. Always ask where your binchotan was produced if it is not stated.

What is Kishu Binchotan?

The Kishu is also where binchotan originated in the 1600s. Some traditionalists believe only the white charcoal made of the oak trees in Wakayama Prefecture in Kishu could be called binchotan. It is considered to be the top grade of binchotan.

In Japan, there are three major sources of premium binchotan white charcoal. They are Kishu binchotan (Wakayama), Tosa binchotan (Kochi) and Hyuga binchotan (Miyazaki).

    Great communication

    I recently purchased the Okunoto Japanese Konro Grill - Medium 54cm Starter Set (4-8 People) as a Christmas gift knowing they were out of stock and I wouldn’t receive until after Christmas which I was absolutely fine with, regardless their customer service & communication on updates was second to none & I highly recommend this product for its high quality & has been great for entertaining with friends & family. Thank you!

    This is the only charcoal to use. Long burning, high heat retention and unlike the imitators, does not turn to ash after one use. No chemical fumes and gives the food a wonderful flavour. Highly recommend.
