    one species; has close similarity to genus Thuja


  1. Thujopsis

    Thujopsis is a conifer in the cypress family, the sole member of the genus being Thujopsis dolabrata. It is endemic to Japan, where it is named asunaro. It is similar to the closely related genus Thuja, differing in the broader, thicker leaves and thick cones. It is also called Hiba, False aborvitae, or Hiba arborvitae. A popular allegory for the meaning behind asunaro is Asu wa hinoki ni narou. In Japan, other than being called asunaro, it also goes by the name hiba. There are also a few regional variations, with asunaro being called ate in Ishikawa, and atebi on Sado island. Thujopsis is a medium to large evergreen tree, reaching up to 40 m tall and 1.5 m trunk diameter, with red-brown bark which peels in vertical strips. The leaves are arranged in decussate pairs, scale-like, 3–10 mm long, glossy green above, and marked with vivid white stomatal bands below; they have a distinctive thick, almost fleshy texture. The seed cones are ovoid, 7–15 mm long and 6–10 mm diameter, with 6-12 thick scales, brown with a violet-white wax bloom when fresh.
