We make TATAMI, Hinoki TATAMI

TATAMI,

indispensable for traditional Japanese living style.  The oldest TATAMI was used for TATAMI-Bed (made of HINOKI wood) around 710 AD by Emperor Shoumu and it is still preserved in SHOSOIN (in the temple TODAIJI, Nara).   For over 1,000 years, TATAMI has been a main flooring material for Japanese housing.   

 

HINOKI ,

Japanese cypress, is a main stream building material for Japanese traditional construction such as temple and shrine. HORYUJI Temple, Japan's First World Cultural Heritage, is the oldest wooden building, it is estimated that HORYUJI Temple was built in 607 AD.  The surface texture (without bark) of HINOKI is very soft with density, while having the strength.  As a construction material, because of the diversity of its usage and its strength, HINOKI has been used and is used as building material for Japanese high-end housing.

Also, HINOKI generates phytoncide which you can enjoy forest bathing trip.  Surrounded by HINOKI, you can feel just like visiting forest and feel reluxed.
