A stonemason, Ashizawa sekizai, in Manazuru town, has exhibited a rock cut in half in front of their store. It is just like a rock of the famous scene of Japanese popular comic "Kimetsu no yaiba".
Mr. Jun Ashizawa, a president of theAshizawa sekizai, and his elementary aged kids are big fans of that comic. Last October, after watching that movie, he got an idea that he might be able to recreate a rock cut in half like a main character "Kamado Kanjiro", and tried to process a stone called Honkomatsu ishi. Therefore it weights about a ton, they spent a whole day for cutting with a machine. Needless to say, his kids were so excited that they pretended to be Kamado Kanjiro with it.
Honkomatsu ishi is a precious stone from Manazuru town. Mr. Ashizawa told "I'm very glad if many people know the beauty of this stone. If there is someone who want to exhibit this stone, I would like to give it". He also said "I'm going to recreate a scene where the legendary holy sword is pulled out of the stone".
A new tourist destination might be made in Manazuru town.
