Lanterns: Oribe Lantern

About Lanterns

Japanese stone lanterns were first used in ancient Shinto shrines where they served as votive lights. In the sixteenth century, Japanese tea masters included the stone lantern in Buddhist tea gardens as a means to light the way with their rustic beauty and rich light. From classic to contemporary, Stone Forest lanterns are informed by this centuries-old tradition.
