Ishiusuzuka (millstones mound)
Home to masonry where a mound of millstones sits quietly in the Kodomari area of Sado
Kodomari in the Hamochi area prospered from masonry, together with the adjacent Tsubakio area in Mano. Masons in Kodomari also gained a widespread reputation as sculptors of Buddhist stone statues. Millstones used to be one of life's necessities, but with the progress of the times, they slid into obscurity. The mound of millstones was founded by locals to express regret. In 1977, millstones at each household were collected and and then dedicated to Hakusan Shrine in the area.
