Kimachi Stone, Japanese Ornamental Rock
Item description - YO06010378
The first written guide on Japanese landscaping, the Sakuteiki, describes creating gardens as: Ishi wo taten koto (石を立てん事). This translates to setting stones upright, a description that greatly emphasizes the importance of these elements within the Japanese garden.
Traditionally applying ornamental rocks, Niwaishi (庭石) in Japanese, forms the basis of practically every Japanese garden. The setting of stones is always the first step, after which the garden is formed together with all the other elements surrounding it.
An authentic Japanese garden needs to evoke a certain natural essence. Rocks and stones play a significant role regarding this principle as they are pure elements, taken straight from nature.
Kimachi stone is a authentic type of Japanese sandstone native to Kimachi near Lake Shinji in Matsue city, Shimane prefecture. It is rough in texture and highly absorbent, making plants like moss easily grow on its surface. The stone type is famous for its use in Izumo stone lanterns, that are named after neighboring city Izumo, where they are made.
