Hinoki Wooden Japanese Minimal High Stool
Tosaryu, made in Japan.
This Hinoki Wooden Japanese Minimal High Stool is crafted by hand in the town of Kochi, Japan. Traditionally used in Japan for baths, this compact sized (13.77"Width x 9.84"Depth x 15.75") yet exceptional bath stool is crafted from natural Japanese Hinoki wood. Hinoki, or Japanese cypress, has long been prized for its natural antibacterial agents and its resistance to humidity. Both make it ideal for bathing accessories. The highly therapeutic wood contains minerals and essential oils traditionally used in Japan to treat skin irritations and reduce stress. This Hinoki stool seats you comfortably for personal care. All of the Hinoki products that we sell are made from 100% by-product wood that results from the thinning of forests which is required to maintain healthy growth.
Established in 1960, Tosaryu is located amidst the mountain ranges of Kochi, Japan. The woodworkers of Tosaryu have personalized the skills of handmaking, or “monotsukuri”, by utilizing the features of the Japanese Hinoki they use to enhance the quality and function of their products.
The wood is dried for 3-6 months before use, maintaining the fragrant, oil-rich, and sturdy composition of Hinoki that allows them to create a variety of products from bath mats to incense. Using sustainable methods of production and in their careful use of local resources,
Tosaryu’s mission remains loyal to the forests and lakes around them as they master their art of woodwork.
