Giboshi (擬宝珠) is a type of ornamental finial used on Japanese railings. Giboshi bridge ornaments resemble an onion; the ends are bulbous and typically come to a point. It is believed that the shape of Giboshi was from Hoju which is used to decorate roofs. They are often found on bridges in Japanese gardens, temples and shinto shrines.
