Title Japanese Stone
CATALOG NUMBER 2004.1.266
Description Upright stone in Japanese Garden.

Note: Stones are essential in a traditional Japanese garden. The choice and placement of stones is of primary importance in the structure of the garden. The principal stones often hold a sacred or symbolic meaning. Several standing stones were set on this hillside by Japanese garden designer Y. Muto in 1912. This stone is thought to be a "worship stone".
