The chōchin (ja:提灯), traditional lighting in Japan,  has a frame of split bamboo wound in a spiral. Paper or silk protect the flame from wind. The spiral structure permit it to be collapsed into the basket at the bottom. The chōchin hangs from a hook at the top. In present-day Japan, plastic chōchin with electric bulbs are produced as novelties, souvenirs, and for matsuri and events. The earliest record of a chōchin dates to 1085, and one appears in a 1536 illustration. (wikipedia.org)
