Toro (Lantern): Miyoshi Guidepost, 36-inches
Miyoshi lanterns are ikekomi-gata, or buried lanterns— their base is buried in the ground. They look stunning when placed at an entry gate or along a garden path.
The name of the originator "Miyoshi" is carved in the face of these Granite Miyoshi Lanterns. The lantern has two window openings with wooden lattice trim, one in front and one in back. Moon shaped windows often grace the other two sides.
These Miyoshi Granite Lanterns includes 2 separately hand-carved pieces, and are available in several sizes, and either gray or beige granite.
