      Ohayo!

      Several pair that I have (all made in the 1900s, I think) are paulownia,
      photos taken in the 1800s depict paulownia blanks being prepared to be made
      into geta, and a several references (web and print) discuss paulownia as a
      common construction material for geta in period. The geta that I have are
      light in weight and show surprising little wear.

      Any other wood being commonly used that anyone knows about?

      things.

      I would not recommend pine if you wear socks, resin!!!
