    I've seen this "Japanese lantern style" lighting phrase thrown around, and I'm not sure if it just generally refers to omni directional overhead light, or if it's a specific type. Does anyone have any photo examples? I've searched the internet, old posts and flickr, but couldn't really find anything. Thanks.

    Hmm,... this is apparently either a really stupid question, or I'm phrasing it in a way that no one has any idea what I'm talking about.

    I'll keep pondering which until someone responds......

    I have no idea what you're talking about, but it sounds cool. Post some examples once you find them.

    If I had to guess, it sounds like soft, dim light.
