The origin of the nickname “Tangmu” Many people like to call the nickname “Tangmu”, which goes back to the Tang Dynasty in China. During that period, Sino-Japanese cultural exchanges were frequent.
Therefore, Japanese scholars refer to the wood used in some precious wood or handicrafts in China as “Tangmu”. Originally introduced to China by Taiwanese timber merchants, and later from Taiwan to Japan, it was popular among Japanese because of its wide range of uses and stable performance. Since then, it called “Tangmu”.
