The cherry trees used in Akita cherry bark work are mainly wild cherry trees from the Tohoku region, which grow in a harsh climate and are renowned for their beauty and durability. The cherry bark is carefully peeled from the trunk and left to dry in the shade for one to two years to remove excess moisture.
