Item description - YO05010051 Hirukawa Stepping Stone, Japanese Stepping Stone - Stepping stones, Fumi-ishi (踏み石) in Japanese, have a very intriguing psychological background. Opposite from regular garden paths, walking on Stepping stones asks more concentration of visitors. This influences the way in which they experience the garden and their surroundings in general. Additionally, when walking over Stepping stones visitors cannot walk side by side, eliminating a form of distraction. When walking 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 (千利休), a very famous historical figure. The original idea behind the Stepping stones was to keep the Zōri, Japanese sandals, clean and dry when walking through the garden. The perfect height of a Stepping stone has always been a historical point of discussion. Sen no Rikyū preferred a high of 6 centimeters, while other tea master such as Furuta Oribe and Kobori Enshū preferred 5 centimeters and 3 centimeters respectively.

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.
