Item description - YO23010112
Metal lanterns are seen as sacred light sources in Japan. They are very often used in Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines all over the country. But also, in regular houses, in the garden or even indoors, authentic metal lanterns bring a one-of-a-kind soothing atmosphere. The light inside the lantern can be arranged in multiple ways, a candle or lightbulb for example. It is common to hang a metal lantern from the ceiling or the wall. Because of this the name in Japanese is Tsuridōrō (釣り灯籠), which roughly translates to hanging lantern. Of course, the lantern can also be beautifully put on display on the floor or a cabinet of some sort. Altogether this means that a Tsuridōrō is a multifunctional ornament with many marvelous options for variety.

This specific Tsuridōrō has the unique shape of a blooming flower with six leaves. This appearance formed the inspiration for the name, as Rokuha (六葉) is Japanese for flower with six leaves. There is a handy candle holder in the middle of the lantern which can easily be taken out by twisting it. Additionally, on the top of the Tsuridōrō you can find Japanese text referring to the time period in which the lantern was made, the Taishō period (1912-1926).
