I like the Arashiyama 6k. I think it's a good stone for the money.

The Arashiyama says its a splash n go stone but I a read some reviews stating that it needs some soaking time, a bit confused on what is the best method?

It's not a 6k but the Suehiro Rika is right there at 5K...

The Rika or the Arashiyama are both great stone. The Rika is a lot softer and I preferred that to the Arashiyama a little bit.

If you have a Naniwa green brick then a Rika or Arashiyama would be too close in grit to consider. The green brick will polish to a fairly high level so the 8k snow white would likely be the better progression.
