Item description
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.

The Japanese Stone Lantern Taihei Gata or garden Ishidoro is based on the Kasuga lantern. This stunning Japanese lantern is Taihei style, named after the Taihei Shrine in Kagoshima, Sendai prefecture. The lantern can be recognized by the bold umbrella featuring square shape ornaments, Warabite, on the umbrella. The main shape of the parts is hexagon while the base is round and decorated with lotus petals.
