This stone is of the type known as a Mountain waterfall stone (Yamagata-taki-ishi) stones with one or more waterfalls appearing on their front surfaces. In this case, it looks like a distant mountain peak with frozen water surfaces - probably made from quartzite. It comes with a nicely carved Daiza(wooden stand) - possibly made of boxwood. The stone itself measures 3.0"(7.6cm) by .35" (8.5cm) by 1.65 "(4.2cm). The daiza stand measures 3.62"(9.2cm) by 2.4" (6.1cm) by .63" (1.6cm) - together they weigh 12.28 ounces - 348 grams. The stone and daiza are in excellent condition.

Hida (飛騨市 Hida-shi?) is the northernmost city in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. It received its name from the historical province of Hida Province, which was centered on the same area. Hida Province's castle town was Takayama.
