Welcome to ISHIMO Blog!

Thank you for visiting our blog. My name is Urara, a staff of a stone company in Kyoto, Japan. I work for Yoshimura Stone Co., Ltd. Our business name is ISHIMO (We have kept the tradition of this name over generations).

We know Japan is getting more popular for sightseeing among foreign people, and there are many people who want to know more about Japanese culture. However, we suppose it is difficult to find information about deeper culture, such as stone culture in Japan. Therefore, with our experience over 300 years, we would like to share interesting stories and what we do in daily life for maintain the Japanese culture from the aspect of stone.

If you are interested in, please visit our place when you visit Kyoto. Many kinds of Jizo statues and other stone items are displayed.
