香木の畑 Agarwood Field

Agarwood Field to produce aromatic wood “agarwood”

Agarwood is an aromatic wood produced from eaglewood, a tree native to Southeast Asia and protected under the Washington Convention (CITES).
The large evergreen tree has no scent as it is, but the resin it secretes congeals and matures over 50 to 100 years to yield a substance that can be processed into agarwood.
In Japan, eaglewood is seen only at Yakushima Senvus Village, where seedlings are nurtured with the dream of reaping agarwood in the future.
In summer, visitors can have a close look at the mysteriously shaped fruits of this rare plant.
