Small stone lantern on the lake

In March 1960, Iida came from Japan to supervise construction of the garden, personally selecting more than 500 huge granite boulders from the Cascade Mountains and wrapped them in bamboo matting to avoid scratches during transport.

This is one of several stone lanterns on the grounds of the Japanese Garden. It sits on a stone in the small lake within the middle of the garden. There's a little walkway of stones that leads out to it. You see it as you walk from the entrance towards the water.
