Hexagonal Kasuga-style stone lantern (Jp. Ishi-doro) sculpted in six parts from granite. Muromachi Period ca. 1500. Minor old loss.

Height, including foundation stone: 197 cm

A classic Kasuga stone lantern in excellent condition, with stylistic clues strongly suggesting a pre-Edo manufacture date.
