+1 on a type of cedar (most are actually cypress) and given the the Japanese propensity to keep everything Japanese, I would assume a native species, though perhaps they went for a more expensive import. There may be several varieties of cedar that may give you a close enough match in grain.

BTW, I wouldn’t add alder to your list. Several goofs here try to be the first to respond to every wood ID thread with “alder”...long running joke.
