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.
Yōganseki is the name for Japanese lava stone. A traditional principle of Japanese landscaping is that elements taken straight from nature have to be implemented in the garden. Japan has more than a hundred active volcanos spread throughout the country. So it is not surprising that lava stones can be spotted quite regularly in the Japanese garden.
