Tokusa-ita –Ø‘¯” are shingles that are thicker than kokera-ita, from 0.45mm to 0.6mm, length from 33cm-36cm, width is 10.2 to 10.5cm but thinner than tochi-ita žz”Â, thickeness is 0.9cm to 3cm, length is within 60cm long and from 9cm to 15cm wide. When large boards are used, they are called oo-ita ‘å”Â. The shingles are usually made of cedar sugi ™, but when needing a better quality, sawara ž¹ (cedar) is used. It is similar to hinoki žw (Japanese cypress) but has no fragrance. Hiba žw—t (white cedar), is also preferred but hinoki is considered the best quality wood.
