It’s defiantly not paulownia I see the big open pores yuk. If that bottle is some special booze then it’s box is one of their coveted cypress woods. I remember reading some wood grown in Japan does not leave Japan. Port orford cedar is really a cypress. And I know clear quarter sawn is highly coveted and very expensive.

Hinoki Cypress is very popler in Japan.
