The world’s oldest camphor tree is located in Japan.

It is an awesome giant at 25 meters tall with a circumference of 33 meters. It is Japan’s third largest tree in existence and designated as a ‘National Natural Monument’. This camphor tree is said to have sprouted at Kawago (Takeo City) during prehistoric times long before rice was cultivated by the people of the Jomon Culture.

There is another large, old camphor tree on the grounds of Kamo Shrine in Japan. It was given a name ‘Kamou no Ohkusu’ and also designated as a National Treasure. It has withstood the most devastating disasters in Japanese history.

The people of Japan do whatever it takes to keep this camphor tree safe; thanks to their efforts, the tree is standing still today. It is believed to be 1,500 years old while the giant at Kawago has survived a cool 3,000 lifespan through all kinds of weather.
