‘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 shō sugi ban (焼杉板), which uses the same kanji characters but a different pronunciation. Ban means “plank (wood)”.
By slightly charring the surface of the wood without combusting the whole piece, the wood becomes water-proof through the carbonisation and thus more durable. It also protects against insects.’ SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
