Charcoal appreciated by Japanese customers for its eco benefits "binchotan"

“Binchotan, (charcoal) the crystalline, almost luminescent material is made by gathering oak branches and baking them at temperatures of up to 800 degrees for as long as five days. It is appreciated for ridding air of harmful chemicals and odor, being rich in natural minerals and to regulate humidity.”
