i found this article about a stone yard in the Japanese city of Koshu, Yamanashi.
The site is a Blog, web info space about Japan that focuses on the interview process. The site; PingMag Make, says they focus on the rural sites and people who are the heroes and gives us an opportunity to learn about them in the interview.
This is a direct link to the interview about the man with the cool stone yard. Looks like a destination place for all of us who are really into stone . . . aren’t we all?
