Kishu Bincho charcoal


Kishu Bincho is a high-grade charcoal that burns at a lower temperature than ordinary charcoal and for longer. Many of the top yakitori (skewered chicken) and unagi (eel) chefs insist on it for their cooking. This very special charcoal is made only from ubame oak, following a strict, traditional manufacturing process. While in Wakayama, keep your eyes peeled for interesting souvenirs such as wind chimes that feature Kishu Bincho in their design.
