(Snow Lantern)

Snow Lanterns are reputedly so called because of the way they hold snow on the roof, though I have heard this queried

They are undoubtedly the most popular of the Japanese garden lanterns

They are positioned close to water to benefit from their reflection

Varieties are available with both hexagonal and round roofs

If you are to have only one lantern in your garden this has to be it
