One of the most appealing aspects of japanese gardens are its stone lanterns. Stone lanterns were originally used to light the way in gardens and at entryways to temples. Today, stone lanterns are a symbol of the long cultural heritage and primarily used for garden enhancement. Japanese lanterns add visual delight and dramatic garden focal points. The lanterns at the Kurimoto Garden were carved from blocks of granite.
