Inkstone temple (墨堂, ぼくどう, bokudō)

A symbolic part of the inkstone. The “temple” is the part of an inkstone where the ink is ground with water. It is separated from the “well” (墨池, ぼくち, bokuchi), i.e. the place where a ready-made ink is stored by the “shore” (硯区, すずりく, suzuriku). To read more about inkstones, please click here.
