  1. Love the building against the blue, blue sky. Very peaceful looking (as it should be). Have a great weekend!

  2. I did not expect tall markers. I Figured there would be lots of cremation and small spaces for burial...

  3. Did you ever go north of Misawa to a place the locals call "hell"? My son took me, and it reminded me a lot of the sulfur springs and steam of Yellowstone. There were cemeteries there and people would take their dead relatives clothes, especially babies clothes, and hang them in the trees so the evil couldn't reach their loved ones. It was very eerie and although it was beautiful like Yellowstone, the clothes hanging in the trees just made it plain spooky. Blessings, Betsy

  4. I was thinking the same as Kathy - expected to see small markers. But since ancestors are so honored in their culture, I guess it does make sense after all to see these very grand markers.

  5. Oh my, they are packed tightly together.

  6. A different kind of cemetery, I suppose they are cramped for space:)

  7. It reminds me a little of a New Orleans cemetery. I love walking through old cemeteries.
