One of the things I love about Japan is the lanterns. Paper, stone and iron lanterns abound and they are all different. This lantern was one of a pair at Itsukushima Shrine, Mayajima Island. I love the delicate lacework and patina of the iron, contrasted with the brilliant orange and white of the wooden shrine behind it.
