Japanese Cemeteries

A message left to a loved one, protected in a bottle

A favorite drink opened to refresh the visiting spirits soul.

A family plot not yet used.

Source of water and pots and pans used to refresh the stones and tell the spirits at rest that they are being visited.

A Shinto Shrine near the cemetery entrance.

I had to delete this post because of errors coming up on it. Not exactly happy with what Google is doing to their blog tools. It seemed like it worked fine years ago and with each improvement, it just gets worse.
