From what I have read about this particular cryptomeria, it can be pruned as necessary to produce desired shape and density of branches. I have 3 of these and intend to prune 2 of them during winter months.
My plants are young specimens, but I have seen one which is about 3 metres tall and 3 metres wide and umbrella shaped with a clear trunk of about 1.5metres. It looked absolutely beautiful, but I have no idea how old it was.
