Kashi / Japanese oak tree is evergreen. In early summer, it flowers in a similar way to chestnut. In Autumn blooms become small acorns. Japanese oak has a structure that is uniformly hard, has excellent dent resistance and has better impact strength than American oaks. Kashi is often found in the Kanto area (Tokyo) In Budo it’s usually use to make wooden weapons such as Bokken. Since it is heavy and very resilient, it’s one of the most favored woods to use.
