Premium Kishu Binchotan: 2kg 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:
- Kishu (Wakayama)
- Tosa (Kochi)
- Hyuga (Miyazaki)
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).
