Hinoki cypress wood also has bug-repellant and antiseptic properties and is long-lasting and durable. It is a very human-friendly material and has been used in Japanese architecture since antiquity. Nara in particular has many buildings made of Hinoki cypress wood. Hinoki is the secret to how the world’s oldest wooden building, the Five-storied pagoda, has remained standing for over 1300 years.
