Oki-gata

The Oki-doro, small or set type movable lantern, are based on the design of bronze temple lanterns from the Asuka Period.
Due to rising land prices, small lanterns came into favor as it became too expensive to build large garden spaces.

In a compact, intimate garden an Oki-gata lantern may be used to create a point of interest. These are lanterns small enough to be placed on top of a stone and often
used to illuminate the edge of a pond, paths or in smaller gardens. Inside the home, these unobtrusive lanterns look beautiful close to tropical plants in a sunroom.

They usually don't have a shaft or legs and are appropriate for a small space.
