    White Charcoal/Binchotan

    Anyone know where I can get Binchotan in Hong Kong?
    I'm looking for the actual charcoal, not products which have Binchotan in them.

    I'll take the thundering silence to mean no.
    So is there anyone hopping over to Tokyo in the near future who could pick up some binchotan for me?

    where can I buy charcoal soap

    Binchotan and related products are available at Franc Franc.
    However I had gotten quite used to the cheap[relatively] charcoal soap from Japan Home Centre.

    Unfortunately they don't stock it anymore and I find myself coal-less once again.

    Does anyone know of a stash somewhere?
