Since Yakushima Island has been registered as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, logging has been prohibited and the quantity of Yakusugi trees on the market is quite limited, making them extremely difficult to obtain.
The color of Yakusugi (cedar) wood is reddish-brown. It is a very beautiful wood with its unique aroma and intricate grain patterns including moku (figure) and kobu (burl).
Please note that the tree oil or fat may start to seep as time goes by as the wood contains a lot of oil and fat.
