If you are looking at similar softwoods, Port Orford cedar, Alaskan cedar, and Western Red cedar, would be appropriate. Generally, I have not had any difficulty with japanese saws, planes, or chisels, on domestic hardwoods like white and red oak, birch, and walnut. My wood stash has been limited to those species.
