Aomori Hiba

The Aomori Hiba is native to and is one of the three most elegant tree species in Japan. The other two tree species are the Kiso Hinoki (a species of cypress) and the Akita Sugi (a species of red-cedar).
Enduring the harsh cold wind in Northern Japan, the Aomori Hiba grows slowly within a beautiful environment. In addition to its exquisite bark, the tree is famous for having a strong endurance against corrosion and is an excellent building material. As the Aomori Hiba also has high antibacterial and insect-repelling properties, its timber is also used for building shrines and temples. Historical architectures such as the Chūsonji Konjikidō in Iwate Prefecture, the Hirosaki Castle, the Iwakiyama Jinja Rōmon, and the Osamu Dazai Memorial Museum (also known as the Shayōkan) use this timber to withstand the flow of time and remains until today.
