Day 18, Japanese lanterns

I went to this site expecting to find an ancient Japnese lantern. But the lantern had been removed upon the death of the property owner. Instead the new owners purchased these lanterns to keep alive the aesthetic. The problem, as I see it, is that they are not well displayed. In the first instance, I do not recall seeing a lantern of this style placed directly on the ground, it is usually elevated on another stone or pillar. In the next photo the lantern seems out of place in a formal garden.
