Not anything particularly beautiful or artistic about this shot, just wanted to show you this MASSIVE stone lantern in someone's backyard!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

that is really massive
would be really nice if you can show it at night when its lit...

@dpm: This kind of lantern wouldn't get lit, especially as it was in a small, junk-littered corner of the back of the house. Normally these kinds of lantern can be found at shrines or temples. No idea why it was at this house.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

It's nicely busy lol I've never seen such a big lantern, great find Daroru :)

@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine! I reckon it must be some family heirloom or something. What would they do with it?!

That is massive alright, huge in fact

@Persian King: Yes indeed!

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Not the lantern, but the backyards have sort of an American backyard feel to me. I guess it's the storage shed on the left and all the clutter. I think of a Japanese yard as more neat and orderly than an American yard.

@Twelvebit: You'd be surprised... people's houses, as opposed to public visible areas such as gardens, are often quite a state!
