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 yamazakura, cherry 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. Yamazakura is the most common type of cherry tree in Japan, and decorates forests with wild cherry blossoms during spring. Freshly sawn yamazakura has a light pink colour that gradually changes to an elegant, deep amber over time. It is also known to improve in texture as it ages and has excellent durability and water resistance.

Handwashing recommended.
Dry thoroughly after washing to prevent mould.
