This is a nice one. I had often thought about getting one like this but it isn't the style I saw in Japanese cemeteries when I was there. And at the time I was into building bridges and ponds and gardens and I wanted one like I got to go with what I was doing. Now it is covered in lichen and moss and sits mostly back out of the way.

This is a more modern design, and are probably used in more up to date cemeteries and other places as lanterns.

Where did you see this one?

You did a nice job photographing it.

We could use a couple of those, if they are able to light some way, around the back yard in some of the flowers. Nice photo.
