    I ordered some Inomoto kanna dai for hira-ganna from Suzuki-ya. The Japanese white oak from Inomoto was flawless. Very tight,dense and straight grained, it was very precisely milled and as dry as can be. Incredibly stable material. I can't imagine finding better kanna dai material anywhere. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to make their own kanna.
