We are the world’s largest manufacturer and supplier of authentic Japanese charred wood siding. Therefore, we have many reasons why Nakamoto Forestry is the best choice. We provide beautiful, long-lasting, low-maintenance, sustainable products. Adding to this, our Yakisugi (Shou Sugi Ban) provide important benefits:
Yakisugi is only authentic, when charred right – “light” or “deep” chars might create optical effects, but durability will only be reached if charred “right”. Yakisugi literally means “charred cedar”, therefore in Japan only Sugi (Japanese cedar) is being used, providing the most beautiful and durable results.
Our products are sustainable PEFC timber, with low carbon footprint. Natural timber is preserved and made durable by our skilled Yakisugi fire treatment without any chemicals. Therefore, we can install it without finishes, alternatively with natural oils without chemicals or solvents.
Not only traditional buildings in Japan, but also modern sophisticated architecture does benefit from Yakisugi. Unique and individual design with exclusive appearance. Its natural beauty and modern, timeless stylishness is increasingly popular not only in Japan but in North America and Europe.
Our Yakisugi is “the original” from Japan – solely produced from Sugi, Japanese cedar. Moreover, our products are truly “Made in Japan”, skillfully manufactured based on our decades of experience. No wonder we are the world’s largest manufacturer of traditional Yakisugi.
As Japanese manufacturer, we are Yakisugi experts and strive for top quality, always. We only use Sugi (Japanese cedar) which is light in weight yet dimensionally stable, free of resins and of high natural durability, thus superior to most other timber species.
Our products are attractively priced and are very durable with little to no maintenance required. As such it is great value for your investment. We pride ourselves with high customer service and are able to offer the shortest lead times for our shipments.
