Narabe Yukimi Nara style Japanese stone lantern, hand carved from natural silver-grey granite in 5 pieces. These are the most traditional form of Japanese snow lanterns.
As part of the ‘Nara Range,’ these lanterns are rustic in appearance with a slightly textured finish. These lanterns are not suitable for light diffusers. The Narabe Yukimi Kyoto Japanese granite ornament, found in our Kyoto range, has a finer finish.
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 bowl 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 Japanese stone lantern is not drilled. We can arrange to have this Lantern drilled. Alternatively, you can place a tea light or candle in this lantern to produce light.
This Snow Lantern – Yukimi-gata – is available in 2 diameters and sizes refer to the top lid.
