Item description - YO01010370 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 good example of an Okigata or movable lantern. The lantern is known for its straight square shapes and beautiful lattice work. On this specific lantern, the lattice work of wood was missing when it arrived from Japan. That is why the Yokoso woodworkers crafted four custom new lattice windows for each side. Three of the four windows are secured, while the fourth can be opened in order fix a light source on the inside of the lantern.
