Item description - YO05010002 Hirukawa Kutsunugi-ishi, Japanese Stepping Stone - Stepping stones, Tobi-ishi (飛石) in Japanese, are an essential element of the traditional Japanese garden. In contrast to regular garden paths, walking on Stepping stones requires more concentration. This has a positive influence on the way in which people experience the garden. Additionally, people cannot walk side by side on a path of Stepping stones, eliminating potential distractions. In a tea garden, this also makes sure that people do not arrive at the exact same time at the tea house before the start of the tea ceremony.

Stepping stone paths were introduced by Sen no Rikyū, a very famous historical figure who is regarded as the founder of the tea ceremony. The original idea behind Stepping stones was to keep the Zōri, traditional Japanese sandals, clean and dry when walking through the garden.

Kutsunugi-ishi (沓脱石) are wide Japanese Stepping stones used to step up from the garden onto a veranda. In ancient Japan, they were often placed in tea gardens so visitors could enter the tea house by Stepping up from the garden. Before entering Japanese buildings, especially traditional houses, it is an important custom to remove ones shoes. This can be done while standing on the Kutsunugi-ishi, which in Japanese means: Rock on which shoes are taken off.

Hirukawa is an authentic Japanese granite type that originates from the town of Hirukawa, which is part of Nakatsugawa city in Gifu prefecture since 2005. Hirukawa granite is used very often in the Japanese garden for elements such as Stone lanterns, Chōzubachi and bridges. But individual Hirukawa stones can also be beautifully applied as ornamental rocks.
