Japanese Stone Lantern

Stone lantern is a unique feature in Japanese landscape garden. It appears in many styles as a decorative item in the garden and is very charming when lightened up at night. Normally the stone lantern stands among green plants or beside the pond. Some designs are simple and neat, but there are also carved with animals, plants or characters. The Japanese Garden in D.R. Park which is a joint development by Ipoh and its sister city, Fukuoka, has these beautiful stone lanterns.

  1. Hi I visited a nursery in Ipoh 2 years ago which sells stone basins made from old flour grinder. I would like to get one but can't remember where it is. I remembered there was another nursery opposite it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
