The Yukimi Gata Ishidōrō (雪見型石燈籠) is the most well-known lantern that is relatively close to the ground. This lantern also translates as “snow viewing” lantern. Yukimi is Japanese for seeing snow. This name was based on the fact that the Kasa (傘) or umbrella of the lantern can be covered with snow during the cold winter days. The snow on the Yukimi lantern is easier to see compared to other lanterns because of its proximity to the ground. Usually a decoration in gardens and are not used as Buddhist or Shinto lanterns. They don’t have the full structure of a toro (lantern), and are low in height.
A stone lantern is made up of multiple independent parts that need to be carefully stacked on top of each other to create a perfectly balanced lantern. The slow process of building the lantern in the garden is also a zen process oneself with the stone and nature.
