Very beautiful Shogi pieces box with unique combination of grain patterns. The charms of this Pieces Box are reddish brown-colored surface and fragrance, which is specific to Yaku-sugi Cedar.
Yaku Sugi cedar is totally banned to cut down since it was designated as UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. This product is highly evaluated due to its rarity as it is extremely hard to procure this material wood.
Complex but very elaborate grain patterns produce true beauty and premium feel. There are a number of serious Yakusugi (cedar wood) collectors all around the world.
※Yaku Sugi cedar has quite a lot of oil content. A few years later, tar and oil deposit will appear on the surface. We recommend that you should avoid placing Shogi pieces in a Yaku Sugi box for a long time, because the pieces might be dirty as its tar and oil deposit might attach the surface.
The board has camber arched top.
