      Okay, I've been looking through my own pictures, but it doesn't help that
      I'm not sure what I'm looking for. As usual when I just ask someone
      'what's a yashira?' they look at me for a second and then proceed to ask
      if I meant 'yashiro' or 'kashira' or some other word. So I'm asking you,
      what is a yashira, more precisely?

      If it is those stone lanterns and whatnot, I've plenty of pictures of
      those. Regardless, here are the links to what pictures I have of Japanese
      gardens. Unfortunately, the pictures are a tad large in most cases.

      private residence)

      Kenrokuen gardens)

      Most of my pictures can be found at mercury.skilak.net/~logan/photos/
      except for those that haven't been scanned in--a problem I cannot easily
      remedy as I don't currently have any more space on that particular
      server. I'm working on a more user-friendly tour of the site, but there
      are more pressing matters at hand.
