"Nezuko" is the name of a tree in the cypress family. It is one of the "Five Woods of Kiso," and is a very useful wood. It is similar to Japanese cedar in feel, has high resistance to decay, and is characterized by low shrinkage and minimal deviation.
Baking the surface not only makes the grain of the wood stand out, but also oxidizes it, delaying corrosion and providing insect repellency.
