Yakisugi (焼杉) is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservation. Yaki means to heat with fire, and sugi is cypress. It is also referred to in the West as burnt timber cladding and available under a number of brands including Shou Sugi Ban® (焼杉板) which uses the same kanji characters but a different pronunciation. The ban character means "plank".
