Cinnamomum japonicum Sieb. is sometimes divided into several varieties on the basis of morphological differences in the leaves. The essential oils of samples of this plant from various parts in Japan were examined from the viewpoint of chemotaxonomy. The results obtained from the materials gathered at Mt. Satsuki, Ikeda-shi, Osaka Prefecture, will be reported here first. The characteristics of the oil of the leaves and branchlets are the abundant presence of 1,8-cineole and p-cymene. The rich existence of linalool in the branchlet oil may also be a characteristic of this plant.
