Japanese Granite Kodai Maru Yakimi Lanterns
With a history of use stretching over a millennium, Japanese lanterns were initially made from metal and used to illuminate shrine and temple doorways.
Later, stone lanterns were introduced into gardens, becoming an important garden ornament related to ceremonies that often took place in the evening when light was necessary to direct visitors to the tea room.
The large and small granite Kodai Maru Yakimi lanterns are simply yet charmingly designed with shapely curves and elements that are distinctly oriental.
When lit, the lanterns come to life, revealing the way forward and creating a Japanese look and feel that can be so alluring.
