Local production for local consumption because it is heavy. Tour the stone processing technology developed around local stones

Since ancient times, humankind has used stones to build castles and tombs. Stone is very heavy, but it is a building material that weathers slowly and is well maintained. Therefore, the stone culture was closely related to human activities. Of course, stone processing is the same, and it is said that processing technology tailored to the stones in the area has developed because it is heavy and difficult to move far. In this program, you can see, hear, and try the actual processing technology while observing the Onishi stone factory, and you can feel it with your whole body.

There is regionality in how to use it! ?? Local stone culture that can be seen from the work

In the present age when transportation technology has been developed, not only stones in the South Kaga area but also stones ordered from all over Japan and overseas are processed from Onishi stone. On the site of Onishi stone, there are many stone works made in the past, including graves. In this program, Mr. Onishi, the president of stone otaku, will explain such works and learn about stone culture, which is used differently depending on the region.

Use local stones as a table. Also sells plates with beautiful stones

However, no matter how nice the stone works are, there are few places and opportunities to buy or put graves and lanterns. In recent years, Onishi Stone has been making tableware using local stones so that people can get closer to the stone culture. Each one has a different expression depending on the texture of the original stone. On the day of the program, you can purchase it if you have a nice plate.
