Outline

“Yamaga-tan” is an original black coal made from Japanese oak wood in Yonezawa city, Yamagata prefecture. The “Yamaga-tan” has unique characters: catching fire easily, no smoke and flame, high-heating power in small amount, keeping power for a long time. The demand of common black coal was decreased. However, for application of sleeping wood resource and inheritance of char-grilled culture to the next generations, the “Yamaga-tan” was developed with students in Tohoku University of Art and Design. If many people use the “Yamaga-tan”, conservation of the good forest, improvement of successor’s lack, inheritance of char-grilled culture, and moreover creating new employment are expected. We really desire to create the recycling-oriented society putting on the forest industry by “Yamaga-tan”.
