By burning oak branches until they are red hot and then rapidly cooling them, artisans in the Kishu region of Japan have been making Binchotan Charcoal for centuries. Regarded as the best quality charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal is also known to enhance blood circulation, capture moisture and odors from the air, and stimulate healthy soil in the garden.
