The Kiso Hinoki is said to have a finer grain compared to other Hinoki of other producing districts.
This is because of the growing conditions such as the severe cold of winter in the Kiso area in Nagano Prefecture, the large amount of rain, and the severity of the slope of the mountain, which grows for years longer than in other regions.
As it grows slowly over a long time, the grain becomes finer and of better quality, making the wood valuable.
Kiso Hinoki famous for its high quality, has a good tint and is shiny, making it desirable as a building material and for furniture as luxury wood because its appearance is beautiful after processing.
Among all, the Kiso Hinoki is especially characterized by its neat color and dense wood grain.
