More information

Thujopsis (pronounced "Thuyopsis") is a genus of conifers endemic to Japan, comprising a single species, Thujopsis dolabrata.

It is often called Hiba and is distinguished from its neighbor, Thuja, by broader leaves and thicker cones.

It goes by several names: asunaro (あすなろ), false arborvitae, or Hiba arborvitae, Hiba cedar.

This evergreen tree can reach 40 meters in height and 10 meters in diameter, with a characteristic reddish-brown bark.

The leaves are thick and arranged in decussate pairs, while the cones are ovoid and covered with a violet wax.

Thujopsis is historically significant in Japan, being one of the "Five sacred trees of Kiso", and is widely used in construction, lacquer work, and wood carving. It is also associated with Tsuga diversifolia forests.

Hiba is rich in Hinokitiol, a powerful antibacterial agent, and is used in therapy to treat various skin conditions, including eczema.

Its strong fragrance, combined with its therapeutic use, makes it a popular choice for diffusion or inhalation, creating an authentic Japanese ambiance.

Hiba embodies both a Japanese cultural symbol and a valuable resource for health and craftsmanship.
