The Kodai Maru Yukimi Nara style Japanese stone lantern is hand carved from natural silver grey granite in 5 pieces. They are a traditional style of Japanese snow lanterns.
As part of the ‘Nara Range’ these lanterns are rustic in appearance with a smooth finish. These lanterns are not suitable for light diffusers. The rustic finish is different to the Kodai Maru Yukimi in the Kyoto Range, which are much finer in detail.
Snow lanterns are most often used in Japanese water basin arrangements and need to be chosen with care to match the proportions of the water basin used. The 45cm lantern works well with a 30cm Japanese water basin and the 60cm lantern works well with a 45cm Japanese water basin.
This lantern is not drilled for the use of a lantern light.
This lantern comes in 5 separate pieces. You can leave the pieces sitting freely on top of each other. If you live in a particularly windy area or you are worried about children or animals knocking into the lantern you can stick the pieces together using a clear, outdoor adhesive such as Stixall.
This Kodai Maru Yukimi Snow lantern – yukimi gata – is available in 2 diameters and sizes refer to the top lid.
