Fujiwara Woodworking

Products are made in Tajima, Hyogo, Japan

Tajima, Hyogo has Texas like weather and because of this unique weather environment (hot and cold), it is an ideal place to grow highest quality of Hinoki (Japanese Cypress). We can create excellent kitchen products with this fine wood.

Hinoki which grew in Tajima has great strength and durability.
Hinoki won’t damage the blade of the kitchen knife and it will not distort much over time. Hinoki is commonly used as a cutting board in Japan.

It’s Organic and Natural

Since we don’t use adhesive, it is environmentally.
A phytoncide is the fragrance of the tree as well as an ingredient called the Hinokiol are contained to Hinoki.
It is said that the fragrance provides a relaxation effect as well as having natural properties.

All products are made one a a time by craftsmen at Fujiwara Woodworking, they have 200 years of history.
The craftsmen go to a logging operation site by themselves and carefully select only the highest quality Hinoki from the site.

We dry the Hinoki for half of a year and before being used to produce our products.

We truly care about nature and the environment and take time to create our products because we are very proud of our premium “Tajima Hinoki cutting boards”.
