Ishigami Village (石神村 Ishigami Mura) is a small community in the Stone World. The village later becomes a base of science operations for Senku to redevelop lost technology such as the steam engine, the telephone cable, and the katana.

Ishigami Village is also the home of multiple key characters, including Chrome, Kohaku, Ruri, Suika, Kaseki, Ginro, and Kinro. Additionally, the village is home to several strong fighters who defend the village such as Magma and Kokuyo.[1]


Ishigami Village is located across two islets in a large lake surrounded by mountains. One is covered in huts with a road down to a few boats, the other hosts the Village Chief's house and makeshift stadium for the village games.

Main Islet[]

Main islet

The main islet.

The main islet is home to the majority of the villagers. It has approximately ten huts, all built in a similar manner with thatched roofs, round bases, small square windows and curtains rather than hinged doors as entryways. Their sizes vary. Near the back of the islet, there is a small tower with the village symbol atop it, able to be used as a guard tower despite having no visible ladder or alternative route up. A large space has been left devoid of houses, presumably as a location for crafts to happen such as boat construction or as a space for the children to play.

The houses have wooden posts embedded in the mud walls to support the thatch, and their walls are sometimes shown to be slanted inward.[2] Internally, it's been shown that the houses have floors that are recessed into the ground for unknown reasons.[3] The dirt ground is covered with a wooden floor of often radialy disposed beams (but not always), leaving a hole in the middle for a fire pit, used mostly for cooking. Because of this, the thatches of the houses often have a raised cap for smoke exhaust. This sort of setup would be replaced by Senku with stoves made of sheet copper and proper stovepipes. The houses have very little in regards to furnishings, other than large clay vessels for storage laid straight on the floor,[4] as the villagers appear to spend most of the time outdoors even in winter.

Chief's Islet[]

The chief's islet houses the fighting arena where tournaments such as the Grand Bout take place, and is home to the village chief and his family. It is slightly smaller than the main islet, and has posts set up around the edges but no fence. The only constructions on it are a small hut, presumably for the guards, and the large house for the chief and his family. The house itself has two floors, the main floor being a throne room where the entire village can gather, and the top floor acting as more of a private meeting room or bedroom. The house is built on top of a giant tree stump and is accessible by a wide staircase at the front.[5]

Village Graveyard[]

The village's graveyard.

The village graveyard is a short walk away from the village itself, at the bottom of a ravine. It is a large mound with several gravestones, some of which are marked with symbols. Some of the symbols are identifiable as mathematical symbols (or identical to them) while others are less recognizable.

The topmost one is the village founder's gravestone, which was actually a time capsule containing a record left by Byakuya. The gravestone was removed from Byakuya's actual burial site in Treasure Island and brought to the mainland in accordance to the hundred tales.

In the final chapter of Dr. STONE: 4D Science, it is shown that the village graveyard is piled on top of a buried collapsed building, visually similar to the collapsed Roppongi Hills Mori Tower.

Chrome's Storehouse[]

Chrome's storehouse.

Chrome's storehouse is located in a clear area of the forest a short distance outside the village bridge. It is far enough away that any experiments of Chrome's don't disturb the villagers or put them at risk. The storehouse was built with help from Kaseki during Chrome's childhood.[6]

Despite it being solely Chrome's, it is one of the larger village buildings and more complicated to build as it is on stilts, eight of them. It is also one of the few, if not the only building with hinged doors at the entryway. The storehouse is shown to have a number of windows which is not portrayed consistently, sometimes being missing altogether as it is in the anime. The windows are not visible from the inside due to Chrome covering the walls up to the roof with shelving space. It later gets upgraded to being an observatory as well, giving it two floors.


Grand Bout[]

The Grand Bout is a martial arts tournament which occurs after the village's priestess reaches 18 years of age. The purpose of the bout is to select the next village chief who will also become the husband of the priestess. This role normally goes to the strongest unmarried man in the village.

It can be inferred, based on a mention of team-based bouts[7] that the Grand Bout is not the only martial arts tournament that takes place in Ishigami village.

100 Tales[]

The 100 Tales are a set of stories created by Byakuya Ishigami to be passed down orally from generation to generation. The aim of it was to preserve some of the knowledge humanity had before the Petrification, and to lead both the post-petrification humans towards mainland Japan and any scientists towards Treasure Island's treasure chest.

Stone Day[]

The village also has "Stone Day" on January 4th, a celebration that came from the 100 Tales. It is a pun on the name of the village, as 1-4 can be read as "i-shi" in Japanese, meaning stone (石). It is also Senku's birthday.[8]



Each of the villagers incorporate what looks like rope somewhere into their outfit. It is made of straw from grasses like hemp (but not necessarily hemp itself). It is not made in the way of traditional Japanese-style rope, but instead in a way unique to the village.[9] The origins of the tradition is unknown, however it is only shown on Ishigami villagers.[10] The location of the rope and how it's tied reportedly symbolizes age, class, and work group, but can also be used as decoration or symbols of religion. There is also red thread woven in to the rope, a symbol of kinship for Ishigami villagers.[11] From a practical standpoint, the rope also functions for the purposes of fastening and supporting clothing, and as an attachment point for any number of objects the wearer may want to carry with themselves, such as weapons or containers like bottles and bags.


The village also has a custom of wearing platform sandals made of wood,[12] the soles of which are narrower than the wearer's feet. They're based off of modern Japanese Geta, and aid them in traversing swamp-like terrain. In winter, the rope sandal part is replaced with a furred leather boot but the sole remains the same.

All of the villagers' clothing is dyed to a shade of blue-green, with the only exceptions being Kokuyo's white under-tunic, Magma's black (anime)/white (manga) one, and Suika's white shirt.


The beliefs and conceptions of the Ishigami villagers are left largely unexplored but are occasionally touched upon.

The villagers are shown to have a mostly nondescript polytheistic religion, consisting of multiple gods who observe humanity, and have power over the lives of people and the natural world.[13][14] The priestess is the highest religious authority, although she has little wiggle room to wield this power for her own purposes, adhering closely to their belief system.[15]

Prior to the revelation of the existence of the people at Treasure Island, the Ishigami villagers seemingly believed themselves to be the only civilization on earth, as noted by Kinro's rather dogmatic explanation that the only outsiders to the village are people who have been previously cast out of it for their crimes.

Before being exposed to Senku's teachings they also seemed unaware of the structure of the universe at large. They appeared to have geocentric beliefs, more specifically believeing that the earth is static, rather than rotating and hurling people from tree branches as a result.[16]

They also lacked knowledge about the shape of the earth, with Chrome noting that he was taught about it by Senku,[17] and Magma specifically mentioning the notion of the earth being flat. The nature of the moon has also been cause of confusion to the Ishigami villagers, who reportedly assumed it to be some sort of floating lake, in some manner related to its small apparent size in the sky.[18]


They are an offshoot of the original descendants from the ISS's Astronauts that left Treasure Island to find the mainland of Japan. However, this fact was lost over the years until its rediscovery in 5741.

Thanks to Byakuya’s influence from the legends of his adoptive son, Senku was recognized by Ruri which helped him to win over the village and add them to his Kingdom of Science.

  • Those who break the rules are banished.
  • The 40 named villagers are not the only inhabitants that live in the village, as Kohaku says that she forgets the number and names of several children and elders.[19]
  • The boats the village uses are single outrigger boats, known for being the first ocean-going ships due to their improved stability compared to single-hulled boats. The villagers developing this type of boat makes sense, as the lake they live on may have a connection to the ocean where they can catch fish.
  • When Suika was alone in South America, she remade several Ishigami villagers' rope to replace the decayed ones. They are slightly different to the usual villager rope as the straw used is from South America rather than Japan, and also Suika was a child so they're less well-made. Visually, the new ropes have frayed ends to differentiate from the old ones.[20]
  • Despite being a water-based tribe, Kaseki is the only villager who makes their boats.[21]
  • Nearly every villager has a name relating to science. They are either elements, minerals, or somehow related to geology or space:
