Item description
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 of even inside, authentic metal lantern bring a one-of-a-kind soothing atmosphere. The light inside the lantern can be arranged in multiple ways, a candle for a 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 means 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 options for variety.

This specific Tsuridōrō is in very good condition and has intriguing carvings of dragons on the panels surrounding the gridwork. This is where the name Ryujin (竜神) originated as this is Japanese for Dragonking.
