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 Zendo-ji Gata is favorite by the tea masters. This traditional Japanese lantern is fatter than other Japanese stone lanterns. Especially the pillar. The lantern features carved tea utensils on the firebox. The base of the firebox is decorated with heart-shaped carvings.
