Japanese Stone Lanterns & Basins

Our ISHI DORO line of Japanese garden lanterns, posts and basins in traditional designs are hand-crafted in solid granite stone. The stone lanterns are available in many styles from the ornately formal to simply rustic in a variety of sizes and ALL are pre-drilled to accommodate low-voltage lighting! We are pleased to be able to offer these items at VERY reasonable prices and can ship them anywhere. 

We have a good variety of inventory on-hand as of December 2023 after shipping a record number of orders from our Fall container which arrived in early November. If we dont have what you want in stock, we are taking reserve orders for Spring 2024 and expect that container to land in early April. The window has a very slight opening for special order items but that will close by mid-January. Our order has been submitted to the factory but has a bit of room on it so let us know if you want to order something soon!

TIPS ON BEATING THE HIGH COST OF SHIPPING: Stone lanterns and basins must ship via pallet freight except for the smallest sizes. This has gotten very expensive in the last year as fuel and labor costs have risen significantly in the trucking industry. We have a few suggestions on HOW TO GET THE BEST FREIGHT VALUE when purchasing these goods:                                              

1. Purchase multiple items if you can - due to common freight carrier pricing structure, it is about the same to pallet ship one item as it is two or three up to around 500 lbs. Costs go up from    there but not radically. Only want one item? Ask a friend if they want to place an order and split the pallet freight to one home the other!                                                                                              

2. Belong to a garden club? Get members together and make a group purchase to share freight costs as long as we ship to one location!                                                                                                 

3. Know a local business owner who has a loading dock or forklift? Ask them if you can have your order shipped there. You can save some real $$$ doing that OR if you have a truck and live        near a major metro area, consider going to the freight terminal to pickup your order and avoid residential liftgate charges.

NOTE THAT AN ITEM LISTED AS "STOCK ITEM" WON'T MEAN THAT IT IS ALWAYS IN STOCK, JUST THAT IT IS SOMETHING WE ORDER FOR INVENTORY ON A REGULAR BASIS. "SPECIAL ORDER" USUALLY MEANS THAT WE TYPICALLY DON'T ORDER THIS SIZE OR TYPE IN ON A REGULAR BASIS UNLESS REQUESTED BY A CUSTOMER BUT, THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE SO CHECK WITH US TO BE SURE. SPECIAL ORDERS ARE USUALLY AVAILABLE WITH A 3-4 MONTH LEAD TIME DEPENDING ON WHEN THE ORDER IS PLACED IN RELATION TO THE TIMING OF OUR CONTAINERS WHICH ARE USUALLY LANDING IN SPRING AND FALL.
