Plan description

Takigaharamachi, Komatsu City, which produces beautiful blue-gray Takigahara stone. Many stone-cutting grounds (choba) with a history of more than 100 years and arch bridges made only of stone are the main reasons why Komatsu City is recognized as a Japanese heritage site in stone culture. Aratani Shoten is the only stone quarry that manages the active quarry in Takigahara, which used to have many quarries.

The stone quarry protected by Aratani Shoten is the only active and active place in Komatsu City, where stone culture is also recognized as a Japanese heritage site. You can actually enter and observe the unique place that can be said to be an unexplored region.

Experience the hardness of the stone! You can make items with the stone cutting work experience

The image of stone is very hard, but until about 50 years ago, I dug it by hand without using a machine. In this program, we plan to make items using stones so that you can actually experience the hardness and sound. Is stone cutting surprisingly soft, or is it hard and very difficult? ?? Experience an experience that only people who actually come can do!

Guide to Takigahara, a Japanese heritage town that flourished with stones

Takigahara, where the entire town was moistened with stones, was once dug out from the bottom of the river, and there were holes around the mountains in the town. We will guide you while strolling through the arch bridge made only of stone mechanics in the town. Why don't you cross the heritage bridge in the nature that seems to appear in the movie?
