Japanese stone lanterns were adopted by masters of the Japanese way of tea who included them in tea gardens to help guide the pathways. Initially being accessible by the wealthy, they were eventually adopted not just as votive lights, but also as more practical lanterns to light the precincts of shrines and temples. Taka Saida is a 5th generation stone smith who will discuss the use of stone lanterns in Japanese gardens.
