The earliest rudiment of the stone lamp was the light which lits before the Buddha in China, which is the “Light Offerings”. This form was introduced into Japan through Korea at that time. With the introduction of Buddhism into Japan in the 13th year of Emperor Qinming. The superb manufacturing technology of stone lanterns was also introduced into Japan, and was passed on and carried forward in Japan. Some past exquisite stone lamps in temples were used as sample records to imitate sculpture, which has formed various designs of stone lamps in modern.
