Yamagata 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.

Yamagata Ishidōrō (山型石灯籠) literally means mountain shaped lantern. This name is very fitting as the lantern has a mountainlike rustic appearance. This particular lantern is made from a natural unpolished rock of Kurama stone and has a somewhat cartoonish look. The lantern does not feature a fire box. Instead it has a wrought iron lantern hanging from a chain.
