Japanese cedar, also called Sugi tree, is an evergreen growing 30 to 50 metres tall. Its needles shift from a pale opal in the summer to a bright red toward the autumn. Japanese cedar is native to Japan and the coastal provinces of China, and is often cultivated in Europe and North America.

Japanese cedar pollen is the most common allergen causing seasonal pollen allergy in Japan. It is the most common cause of seasonal allergic rhinitis and contributes significantly to sinusitis and rhinoconjunctivitis during spring. It is a risk factor for bronchial asthma in Japanese adult asthmatics. Pollen from this tree also affects the severity of atopic dermatitis and is an important factor in oral allergy syndrome.
