Hirukawa Stepping Stone, 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 tea master Sen no Rikyū, a very famous historical figure. The original idea behind Stepping stones was to keep the Zōri, traditional Japanese sandals, clean and dry when walking through the garden.
The Stepping stone can beautifully function as the beginning or end of a path of Stepping stones. Additionally, it can be used at a split of Stepping stone paths in a very authentic way.
