Guide Stones

Guide stones are a beautiful part of Japanese garden design. They were originally used to light the way in gardens and the entrance to temples.

Often sited in pairs guide stones were later used as a means of guiding guests to the tea room as the traditional tea ceremony introduced by the tea-master Sen no Rikkyu was usually held in the evenings.

As the Ikekomi-Gata style lanterns require only a small hole to install the lantern minimal damages to already existing plants and roots will occur.

Carved granite lanterns and guide stones are the most recognized and visually stimulating elements in a Japanese garden.
