- Mountain Suiseki-stone
- Quarrying areas:
- Yoshimagawa River, Iwaki City, Fukushima Pref.
The Yoshimagawa River in Fukushima Prefecture is well known as a quarry for famous suiseki viewing stones. Stones such as this, which feature natural depressions in their tops capable of holding water, are called mizutamari-ishi, or puddle stones, by suiseki enthusiasts. We can feel a sense of natural scenery in this stone as we are reminded of sandy beaches or the shores of a lake.
