The contemporary Kinka Lanterns are handmade from Washi - a Japanese paper made from mulberry wood. Creating a soft, atmospheric light indoors or out, these battery-operated LED lanterns are designed to provide a contemporary answer to a traditional need by incorporating digital technology that is safer, healthier and more convenient than the use of conventional candles.


ASANO has been traditionally crafting Gifu lanterns for 100 years. While mainly focused on lanterns and traditional techniques, they also develop new lantern concepts to complement today’s modern lifestyles. Asano has also moved into new areas, such as interior lighting equipment and lantern hats.
