Kotoji Japanese Stone Lantern:

£699.00 inc delivery.

The Kotoji Japanese Lantern is synomous with the famous Kenroku-en Garden created in 1620. The lantern takes its shape from the bridge on a Koto. The Koto is a traditional stringed musical instrument.

During the Narinaga Period (1782-1824) Kotoji lanterns had 2 legs which were the same length and were often placed inside the confines of water. Our Kotoji lanterns are carved to this specification. Legend has it that one leg on the Kotoji latern at Kenroku-en became damaged and was buried into the river bank by the gardeners. Thus giving the appearance of unequal leg lengths. This has become an iconic image and has influenced the positioning of these lanterns today.

Currently Kotoji Lanterns are positioned with unequal length legs. Typically one leg sits in the water and one leg on the shore to create a sense of harmony between sea and land. This can be achieved by digging one leg into the ground or simply cutting it shorter.

Rankei Japanese stone lantern:

£495.00 inc delivery.

The Rankei Japanese Lantern is hand carved from natural silver grey granite in 6 pieces, features a distinctive curved column which is off-set from the base stone. Rankei lanterns are from the Yukimi-doro family, as they have a curved pedestal, which can be partially buried into the ground, to the base stone.

In Japan Rankei lanterns are traditionally positioned on the banks of a pond. The stem of the rankei rises out of the bank and allows the body of the lantern to overhang the water. This gives not only a wonderful reflection in the water, but also a link between water and land.
