Shikoku Stone, Japanese Ornamental Rock
Item description - YO06010235
Ishi wo taten koto (石を立てん事). This is the way in which the Sakuteiki, the oldest document on Japanese gardens, describes creating gardens. The phrase is ancient Japanese and means the setting of stones. This greatly emphasises the significant role of rocks and stones.
Intelligently applying ornamental rocks, Niwaishi (庭石) in Japanese, forms the foundation of nearly all Japanese gardens. First of all, the rocks need to be in the best possible spot before other parts of the garden can be created. We refer to rocks and stones as the backbone or Kikotsu (気骨) of the garden.
An authentic Japanese garden has to evoke a certain natural essence. Ornamental rocks have a significant role in achieving this as they are unpolished elements taken straight from nature.
Shikoku stones are the rarest and most mesmerizing stones in the Yokoso Japanese Gardens collection. The stone type is seen as national cultural heritage by the Japanese government, meaning that it is prohibited to delve and export it. The Shikoku stones that we offer used to belong to Japanese gardens that are currently disbanded, which makes it possible for us to present them in our collection.
The authentic Japanese ornamental rocks of the entire collection are carefully handpicked by our professional partners in Japan. This way we can ensure that what we offer is of the highest possible quality, in order to create real high-end Japanese gardens.
• Origin: Nagoya, Aichi prefecture
• Material: Shikoku stone (四国石)
