Authentic

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.
