People, for those who have not seen something like it. This is a photo (from slide) I took on a graveyard in Tokyo in 1991.
How beautiful,.... almost enough reason to die for.

I have already shared this with Peter some time ago. And interesting it is !
I would wish myself such a grave (not yet right now that is).
Bye, Piet,

P.s. Don if this is not done for whatever reason then please remove it.


I moved it to general because it was not an introduction or welcome.  I assumed you wanted it in the Public area.


Hi piet.
It is not shrine,It is temple. If you know how huch cost you make one like photo, You don't want to die soon.  ;D  Make lot's of money then you can go  ;)
Many graves have similar design.  Boxwood/inutusge. gampo azalea.Japanese maple, tipical selection of plants/tree.
Don :
Thanks, let's peoples to see photos.


Beautiful no matter what the cost.  The idea is there and could be simplified to cut cost.  Thanks for sharing the photo.



Beautiful is indeed the word.  It just looks so absolutely "right".


It is a beautiful display.

I'm curious about the laceleaf maple. I've heard that those trees aren't used too much in Japan, or Japanese gardens?
