Tenkachaya 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.

The Tenkachaya Gata Ishidōrō (天下茶屋型石灯籠) is a beautiful example of an Okigata or movable lantern. The lantern is known for its straight square shapes, beautiful gridwork and openings in the shape of the sun and moon. This specific lantern only featured a gridwork of wood on each side in the past.
