Item description - YO23010050
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 Tsuridōrō is beautifully crafted. The gridwork as well as the carvings seen over the entire lantern are a prime example of authentic Japanese craftsmanship. The inside of the Tsuridōrō is traditionally covered with Washi paper. This makes the light shining from the lantern very soft and southing. Its dark color and overal appearance give the Yonaka Tsuridōrō a quite mysterious, yet calming aesthetic. Similar to midnight. The name Yonaka (夜中) means midnight in Japanese.
