  • One head for one tree

    “One head for one tree”: A bold statement signifying how special the ‘Kiso Hinoki’was regarded in the Kiso area. The death penalty was imposed upon those who stole even one Kiso Hinoki cypress tree.


    Horyuji Temple, the world’s oldest wooden building over 1,300 years old is made from Kiso Hinoki cypress trees. Trees in the Kiso Region grow 3 times slower because of the severe conditions in winter. The fight for survival ensures the Kiso Hinoki Cypress trees are durable.


    Another advantage of Kiso Hinoki cypress is that it kills bacteria and has a beauty scent Using these prominent features – we have focused on using them for our chopping boards, bathtubs and counter tables we sell to sushi table.


    Over the last few years - we have made the following items with Kiso Hinoki cypress trees and several other trees, such as ‘Sawara’ tree.

  • Kiso is located right in the center of Japan and regarded as the capital of forestry and the wood working industry. This mountains surrounding this place still remains a part of the old post-station town atmosphere from the Edo Era (1603 to 1868).
