The natural forms, luster and texture of the stone mined in Kagawa Prefecture, and shaped by skilled craftsmen, make each Aji stone bookend a unique and functional art object.

Each bookend crafted from the local granite, characterized by its fine crystals, is split and polished to a smooth finished on the book facing sides and base. The granite is mined from the foothills of Mount Goken in the eastern area of Takamatsu city, an area with a history in the stone business since the first stones were mined for the construction of Takamatsu Castle in 1588.

The Aji Stone project is one initiative contributing to the revitalization of the stone business, which is the areas core industry.
