About Us

ISHIMO is a stone company established in 1726 in Kyoto. Our origin is that Moemon Yoshimura the First started to work as a stonemason in Kita-shirakawa area of Kyoto during the Edo period. That area was used to be known as a village of stonemasons at that time. Our ancestors were originally professionals of stone carving. As time goes by, however, we started to work mainly for stone constructions. Nowadays, we work for many shrines and temples in Kyoto, such as Kiyomizu Temple, Heian-jingu Shrine, and Kinkaku-ji Temple.
