Japanese Paper Lanterns

I caught these photos of some beautiful paper lanterns in Sendai on my evening walk last month. Both lamps are advertising food and liquor. Their shadows, shapes and colors really give the shops that Japanese feeling.

I'm glad to see that these lanterns are still being used. They're so friendly looking!

Lanterns of paper,
glowing like fireflies, you light
my way through the night.

I love paper lanterns! We don't see them around here too often, mainly they only come out for special celebrations like Chinese New Year.

Even though your SSS was late last week I included your gorgeous kitty in one of the collages on Sunday. Not sure if you noticed. It was such an adorable photo of Sputnik that I just had to include it :)

Original quality rice paper Japanese lanterns as used through centuries of Japanese history to the present day.
