Hinoki means cypress and is a slow growing tree which grows to 35m tall with a trunk up to 1m in diameter.

It is grown for its very high-quality timber in Japan, where it’s used for building palaces, temples, shrines, traditional theaters, and baths, also known as onsens. The world’s oldest wooden building, Horyuji Temple, and Osaka Castle are built from Hinoki wood.

The wood is lemon-scented which is why Hinoki is really fresh and up-lifting. The wood is light pinkish brown, with a rich, straight grain, and is highly rot-resistant.

Hinoki is the most used, most popular and well-known lumber in Japan. It is known for its strength and it’s natural insecticide properties. It has the ability to absorb toxic substances.
