Historical note: The Nakayama Quarry was founded about 800 years ago.
The Nakayama Quarry, located on the east side of Mount Atago, is part of the Higashi Mono East Quarry.
Nakayama stones were the property of the Imperial Court for their high quality and were used to polish swords. These stones have never appeared on the market since the Kamakura period 1185-1333. And until the middle of the Muromachi era 1336-1573.
Nakayama stones are the most famous and illustrious of all Japanese natural decoration stones.
