Bake-Tōrō or Bake-Dōrō (化け灯籠 Bake-Tōrō, lit. Monster Stone Lantern) is a stone lantern Yōkai.


Bake-Tōrō is a tsukumogami, specifically of a stone lantern called the tōrō, and his appearance resembles that ishi-dōrō variety. He has an onion-shaped finial being held by the lotus-like support, an umbrella top with four horns covers the firebox that is cracked sideways, it sits on top of a platform that has slits at the front, representing his mouth, a short post, and the base that also has four horns protruding outwards. Within the firebox is where his eyes appear from each window, each with a red iris and orange sclerae. Two fireballs are always floating near at all times, acting as his hands.[1]
