Inagaki Stone Store launched the stone tableware brand “INASE” in April 2020, making use of traditional techniques for manufacturing tombstones. The unique tableware carved from blocks of natural stone is characterized by its solidity and luxury, and is supplied to Michelin-rated restaurants both in Japan and abroad. Currently, this business accounts for approximately 10% of Inagaki Stone Store’s sales, with the company aiming for half of that in the future. Additionally, our efforts to upcycle industrial waste from tombstone manufacturing have been highly acclaimed, and we have also succeeded in developing new markets.
Background of implementation
[Inagaki Stone Store]
Stonemasons in Okazaki City continue to take on new challenges in order to pass on traditional techniques to the next generation. While the demand for tombstones is decreasing, we are proposing a new product called stone tableware and trying to spread the word about the skills and appeal of stonemasons. Through this initiative, we are opening up new possibilities for the local stone industry while facing the issue of a lack of successors.
[Raku no Yu]
Raku no Yu emphasizes that public baths function as regional hubs. We aim to convey the charm of the region, solve local issues, and give back to the community through public baths. This collaboration with Okazaki-produced Uju stone is being carried out to address the issue of a lack of successors for stonemasons.
