The Ishi-no-Hoden is a huge megalithic stone which is located in the town of Takasago in Japan. The Hoden stone ("hoden", literally means "treasure mansion") was carved out of the surrounding mountainside.

The stone is 5.6 meters high, 6.5 meters wide, and 7.5 meters deep with a weight of 500 tons. This makes the stone larger than any of the stones used in the Great Pyramid of Giza: the largest of which was 80 tons while the typical large base stones of that pyramid were 6-10 tons.
