JFG Hosts Master Series: Lantern Walk Tour With Stone Master Taka Saida
Join the Japanese Friendship Garden as they host a Stone Lantern Walk Tour with Stone Master Taka Saida on Friday, May 19th.
Japanese stone lanterns were adopted by masters of the Japanese way of tea who included them in tea gardens to help guide the pathways. Initially being accessible by the wealthy, they were eventually adopted not just as votive lights, but also as more practical lanterns to light the precincts of shrines and temples.
Taka Saida is a 5th generation stone smith who will discuss the use of a stone lantern in Japanese gardens.
