Lit. crane island. A garden island made with several stones and, usually, a pine to suggest the flight of a crane. As symbol of longevity, a crane island is often paired with a tortoise island *kamejima ‹T“‡, in pond gardens and dry ponds *kareike ŒÍ’r of *hourai youshiki –H—‰—lŽ®. In contrast to the more suggestive shape of the tortoise island, the crane island is more abstract featuring one or more large triangular stones and small shrubs or a pine. In a few cases a long thin stone is used to express the crane's head tsurukubi-ishi ’ߎñÎ, and small wing stones hane-ishi ‰HÎ are placed on either side.
