Ohira natural stones are mined in Kyoto Japan. This Ohira is soft which means it has slightly larger particle size. Meaning its less fine then some others. I creates slurry well but could still use help from a nagura stone.
Ohira stones are great investments into the natural stone world. Easier then some others to use.
This particular stone is pretty perfect in structure besides one corner on the bottom.
