Shikoku 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 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.

This Stepping stone can beautifully be applied at the beginning, end, or split of a path of Stepping stones. Next to this, it can also function as Mae-ishi, the Stepping stone in front of the Chōzubachi in a traditional Tsukubai arrangement.

Shikoku stones, also known as Iyo stones, are very valuable and full of character. The stone type is seen as national cultural heritage by the Japanese government, making export very difficult.
