About the List

*This list is in no particular order outside of Togiten being placed at the top due to him being the origin source of a certain type of product the others sell. Otherwise, the listing order is alphabetical and should not be taken as endorsement of one vendor over another*

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of the only people selling good Japanese Natural Stone. I am sure there are many vendors out there I’m unfamiliar with selling stone which works great. These are simply the locations I’ve gotten enough testimonials for or have enough personal experience with to feel confident they offer a good product.


Togiten (Sakamoto Morio / Sakamoto Kouji) –

  • This is the Yahoo Auction user for Sakamoto Morio and Sakamoto Kouji themselves, the direct source and evaluator for the Mikawa Asano Nagura. Though the Buyee site can be a little strange for first time users, this should be the first place to shop for Mikawa Nagura. Prices tend to be better and you are getting your nagura directly from the source. If the store doesn’t have what you are looking for, it can be beneficial to keep checking back as he puts up new nagura frequently.
