Where you can find this rock : Ropy Lava at Shirataki Park, Mishima City

 
何度も噴火を繰り返した富士山。今から一万年ほど前の噴火ではたくさんの溶岩が流れ出し、それは三島周辺まで到達しました。さらさらと流れやすかったこの溶岩は、流れるそばから表面が固まりひだ状の形を残すことがあります。まるで縄を何本も並べたように見えることから、縄状溶岩と呼ばれ、白滝公園や楽寿園をはじめ市内には多く見られます。また三島市は湧水でも有名ですが、地下水が溶岩のすき間をとおってわき出したもの。白滝公園はその湧水の流れと縄状溶岩が同時に見られる場所です。

Mt Fuji has erupted many times in its long history. The eruption about 10,000 years ago, expelled vast amount of lava. The flow reached as far as Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture(approximately 27km from the top of the mountain). Due to its low viscosity, the lava flow left a wavy pattern on the surface; as the flow went, the surface instantly solidified. The common name ‘ropy lava’ comes from this surface image resembling a collection of twisted ropes. Ropy lava can be found in many parts of Mishima City, including Shirataki Park and Rakujuen Municipal Park. Mishima’s natural spring water owes its pureness to this ropy lava, as the groundwater is filtered through the cracks and fissures of the lava. Shirataki Park is a fantastic place to enjoy the sight of ropy lava as well as Mishima’s well-known natural springs.
