Item description - YO01010260 Kiku Tamate Gata Ishidoro, Japanese Stone Lantern - Stone lanterns, Ishidōrō (石灯籠) in Japanese, are without a doubt the most characteristic part of the traditional Japanese garden. The phenomenon originated from China more than a thousand years ago, from there it spread to Korea and eventually was integrated into Japanese culture as well. All Japanese holy sites, such as Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, use stone lanterns as sacred light sources. During the 16th century, stone lanterns became very popular among Japanese tea masters and they were used to light the path through the tea garden leading towards the tea house. Ever since then, one or multiple stone lanterns are featured in almost every traditional Japanese garden.

A Japanese stone lantern is made up of multiple independent parts that need to be carefully stacked on top of each other to create a perfectly balanced lantern.

The Tamate Gata Ishidōrō (玉手石灯籠) is one of the most well-known Oki Gata lanterns, which are lanterns without a pillar. All parts together give the lantern a sphere-like appearance, which is referenced in its name. Tama being the Japanese word for sphere.
This specific Tamate Gata Ishidōrō is modeled after the Chrysanthemum, Kiku (菊) in Japanese, which is the national flower of Japan and the symbol of the Japanese imperial family.
