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.
Kuroboku stones (黒ぼく石) originate from the surrounding area of Mount Fuji in Yamanashi prefecture. Without a doubt one of the most famous volcanos in the world. The stone type is created in the dark soil of the volcanic landscape and can be seen as a combination between sandstone and volcanic rock.
