Traditional Japanese lanterns for your life and events

Until the Meiji Period (1868-1912) when the Western culture flowed into Japan, one of the lights that illuminated the night of the country was the Japanese lanterns (chochin).

And still, it is an indispensable lighting for the traditional festivals and the shops of Japanese restaurants.

 

 

The meaning of Japanese lanterns

In the case of saying “Japanse lantern”, it may have three meanings. First, it means a plant, Physalis alkekengi. But most people call it Chinese lantern. You can buy the seed from here.

 

Then, the words refer to the Japanese stone lanterns. The lighting equipment stand on the ground of the temples, the shrines, and the gardens.

 

And finally, the paper lanterns. The paper lanterns made of the washi paper (Japanese paper) and bamboo already began to use in Heian Period (794-1185). But today, we often find the plastic lanterns.
