Item description - YO01010214
Japanese stone lantern, in Japanese Toro, or Tourou. The earliest were introduced to Japan from China through Korea along with Buddhism. Stone lanterns, or Ishidourou, were used first as votive lights at temples and shrines. Later they were used to light the ground of these religious precincts. Secular use began in the 16c. when stone lanterns were used by tea masters for gardens surrounding their tea huts.

Almost all Japanese stone lanterns are divided into separate parts. From bottom to top, the base: Kiso, the pilar: Sao, firebox base: Chudai, the firebox: Hibukuro, the roof: Kasa and the jewel: Houju.

Japanese Stone Lantern Renga-ji Gata. Very unique Renga-ji based Japanese stone lantern. This fairly elegant Japanese lantern is one of the favorites of the tea masters. All parts besides the post are hexagonal. The roof looks like it is covered with 9 rows of small roof tiles. Most of the time the firebox base features a lotus crest on all sides.
