Morigataki Quarry Remains

Japan Heritage
From the Meiji era, this quarry was in important part of the stone industry in the Fukuda district. There are records of stone being shipped from this quarry for use in the bridge to the gate of the Imperial Palace, and in the tomb of Emperor Meiji at Fushimi Momoyama. What remains today of that prosperous quarry site are only the tool marks on the rock faces and the rainwater lake that has filled the pit
