Item description
Japanese stone lantern, Toro, or Tourou in Japanese. 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 grounds 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.

The Japanese Lantern Song Qin Ting Gata. All parts are round in shape. The Song Qin Ting lantern is simple in shape and therefore very elegant. This type of lantern has no base but is buried in the ground. The original can be found in the MatsuKototei on the grounds of the Katsura Imperial Villa.
