Item description - YO01010182
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 Kominka Gata Ishidōrō (古民家形石灯篭) is a very unique and beautiful Japanese stone lantern. Kominka is a word that describes old traditional Japanese folk homes. These folk homes formed the inspiration for the lantern, which can clearly be seen. This Kominka Gata Ishidōrō is designed with four legs.

• Origin: Nagoya, Aichi prefecture
• Material: Japanese sandstone (砂岩)
