It’s known for the outstanding qualities as lumber: 
It’s not only quite easy to process, but the durability is said to last for 1,000 years. Moreover, it smells incredibly soothing as if you were in woods.

Hōryū-ji Temple(法隆寺), a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kyoto, was made of hinoki lumber 1,300 years ago, and still stands as one of the greatest architectural achievements of Japan.

Hinoki is also perfect as material for furniture and other daily items.
Bed and tables made of Hinoki are quite popular, and lots of plates, cups and utensils are also available. Such as this:

However, what we recommend is stationery, especially luxury ballpoint pens.

Pens made of hinoki are smooth to write with and easy to handle. They last a lifetime, and grow with natural beauty as years pass by.
Having different wood grains from one another, they are not only great as your personalized writing instruments, but also make perfect gifts for someone special.
