Cinnamomum camphoraFamily: Lauraceae
English: Camphor tree
Japanese: クスノキ (Kusu no ki)
The camphor tree can grow to beautifully large and the leaves have a wonderful scent. You may find it in lower mountains, and even in Shiratani, but it's especially in lower altitudes. You will find a tiny insect home at the base of the lowest veins in almost every leaf. It is grown in gardens worldwide.
The tree with the largest girth in japan is a camphor tree in mainland Kagoshima.
