Kodai Tamate Gata Ishidoro, 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 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 (玉手型石灯籠) is a very loved Okigata lantern, which is a small lantern that is easily moveable. The Japanese word Tama means ball, in reference to the general shape of the lantern. Additionally, the dimensions are very often all the same just like a ball.

The Kodai variant of the Tamate Gata Ishidōrō has a more natural appearance and is based on the first version of the lantern. This explains the name Kodai (古代), which is Japanese for ancient times.
