Item description - YO06010221
Ishi wo taten koto (石を立てん事). This is the way in which the Sakuteiki, the oldest document on Japanese gardens, describes creating gardens. The phrase is ancient Japanese and means the setting of stones. This greatly emphasises the significant role of rocks and stones.

Intelligently applying ornamental rocks, Niwaishi (庭石) in Japanese, forms the foundation of nearly all Japanese gardens. First of all, the rocks need to be in the best possible spot before other parts of the garden can be created. We refer to rocks and stones as the backbone or Kikotsu (気骨) of the garden.

An authentic Japanese garden has to evoke a certain natural essence. Ornamental rocks have a significant role in achieving this as they are unpolished elements taken straight from nature.

This greatly unique ornamental rock features carved text on the occasion of the Gion Matsuri festival that is held on an annual basis in Kyoto. It is likely the most famous festival in all of Japan and has the primary function to purify and pacificate evil disease causing entities. The carved text reads Gion Matsuri Yoiyama (祇園祭宵山). Yoiyama refers to the three days leading up to the big festival parade when the streets of downtown Kyoto are only open to pedestrians.

The authentic Japanese ornamental rocks of the entire collection are carefully handpicked by our professional partners in Japan. This way we can ensure that what we offer is of the highest possible quality, in order to create real high-end Japanese gardens.

• Origin: Kyoto, Kyoto prefecture
• Material: Hirukawa stone (蛭川石)
