Item description - YO23010057
Metal lanterns are seen as sacred light sources in Japan. They are very often used in Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines all over the country. But also, in regular houses, in the garden or even indoors, authentic metal lanterns bring a one-of-a-kind soothing atmosphere. The light inside the lantern can be arranged in multiple ways, a candle or lightbulb for example. It is common to hang a metal lantern from the ceiling or the wall. Because of this the name in Japanese is Tsuridōrō (釣り灯籠), which roughly translates to hanging lantern. Of course, the lantern can also be beautifully put on display on the floor or a cabinet of some sort. Altogether this means that a Tsuridōrō is a multifunctional ornament with many marvelous options for variety.

This specific bronze Tsuridōrō originated from the Dazaifu Tenman-gū (太宰府天満宮) Shinto Shrine dedicated to the god Tenjin in Dazaifu, Fukuoka prefecture. The text on the wooden chest refers to this shrine and also tells that the lantaarn was made in celebration of a festival that the Shrine has organised since 1715.
On the lantern you can see the symbol known as Ume no Hana (梅の花), which is Japanese for the flower of the plum tree. The Dazaifu Tenman-gū Shrine is famous for its plum trees.
