Item description - YO01010236 Nozura Rankei 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.

This beautiful unique lantern is a Nozura-dōrō with the shape of a Rankei Gata Ishidōrō. Nozura-dōrō (野面灯籠) literally translates to lantern of rough stone, a very fitting name. The famous stone lantern variation is for the most part made of unpolished rock. This gives the lantern a natural and rustic appearance, making it blend well into any garden or landscape. An important principle of the traditional Japanese garden is that it should reflect the true essence of nature. A principe that strongly supports peoples choice for a lantern like the Nozura-dōrō.

The Rankei Gata Ishidōrō (蘭渓型石灯籠) is a very popular stone lantern that is famous for its characteristic bended Sao on which the Hibukuro rests in a balanced way. The lantern is often placed elegantly along the waterside. Additionally, it also fits perfectly in other spots of the Japanese garden such as next to the garden path or surrounded by green.
