The core fundamentals of healthy living start from what we choose to surround ourselves with, ranging from fresh natural ingredients to the utensils used to prepare our food. Traditionally, Hinoki wood is well known for its use as a cutting surface as the characteristics of the wood help retain the taste and texture of delicate dishes like Omakase sushi. This is why top Omakase sushi chefs deliberately choose chopping boards that are made from Hinoki wood to ensure the best quality food is served to their customers.
With an original “Wa” product, you will have the exact same experience as top sushi chefs. Each of our products are carefully handcrafted true to Japanese tradition by skilled artisans which embody the true symbol of Hinoki: Strength, Durability and Holiness.
Hinoki wood is a true icon of prosperity and good health that arouses all five senses.
The Charms of Hinoki
Smooth Finishing Touch
Hinoki wood comes in a beautiful white with a hint of pale pink color creating a unique sheen touch. The wood is simply smooth to the touch due to its extremely fine grain characteristics.
Hinoki wood is resistant to both water and humidity because the wood is hygroscopic. This characteristic makes it hard for the wood to deform, shrink, bend, warp or even crack.
Hinoki wood contains a very unique fragrance that has a long-lasting scent after drying. It’s aromatic fragrance helps people feel calm, reduces anxiety, treats fatigue and respiratory problems.
Hinoki wood contains high essential oil content and the phyoncide found in Hinoki has a strong antibacterial effect which can help prevent any mold formation and bacteria to grow.
Durability & Strength
Hinoki wood was used to build Japanese temples, shrines, and palaces in ancient times such as the Osaka Castle and Horyuji Temple which are still standing and in form after 1,300 years.
