Hida-Takayama is a centre of wooden furniture production in Japan and has a well-established reputation for expert carpentry. The predominantly mountainous area of Hida is densely forested and home to hundreds of tree species.
These cutting boards were made of yamazumi, crab apple (Malus tschonoskii) wood, just one of the wood types available in the local forests, and show off the wood’s distinctive properties. Each cutting board is carefully handmade and coated with perilla oil to highlight the one-of-a-kind woodgrain of the tree from which it is made. Malus tschonoskii, known commonly as crab apple is a deciduous fruit tree native to Japan. The tree is famous for its colourful foliage during the autumn season, developing a wide range of shades from yellow through to orange, scarlet and even purple.

Handwashing recommended.
Dry thoroughly after washing to prevent mould.
