Item description - YO01020037
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.

The Misaki Gata Ishidōrō (岬型石灯籠) is a well-known Okigata lantern with an elgant round appearance. The lantern is often seen along the waterside between pebbles or on a bigger ornamental rock. Additionally, the lantern is a perfect addition to a Karesansui or Zen garden. The Misaki Gata Ishidōrō is a famous part of the Katsura Imperial Palace in Kyoto.

This lantern is the characteristic Indonesian version of the Japanese Misaki Gata Ishidōrō made of lava stone.
