Photographer's Note

Lanterns at Kasuga Taisha in Nara Park. One of several different styles. From Wikitravel:

"Kasuga Taisha (春日大社), 春日野町160, ☎ +81 0742-22-7788, [7]. Worth a visit for the beautiful approach, through the Kasuga-yama Primeval Forest (see below), more than the temple itself. What Kyoto's Fushimi Inari Taisha is for torii, Kasuga Taisha is for stone lanterns. Notice the giant rack of sake barrels near the front gate and the fountain-statue of a giant buck. The temple is occasionally closed for services, but a walk around the outside is likely to be no less rewarding. Grounds free, inside of shrine ¥500, treasure hall ¥400. "

I've already uploaded a shot of the stone lanterns.
