This cemetery “park” in Nagoya is an endless sprawl of graves ascending and descending a hilly range for miles. However, it nestles a lake, there is a wooded walking path surrounding the premises, and there are numerous large monuments that break up the otherwise monotonous landscape.
NIJI NO TOH: A rainbow tower that transmits a rainbow from the tip at each equinox day
KENTAI NO TOH : A monument For the memory of the people who left their body to medicine
HEIWA-DO: a peace temple donated by Nagoya’s sister city in China
MUEN-ZUKA: two mound graves for the people who no longer have any other living relations to take care of their graves – one a green hill containing ashes and the other a mountain of old stones
ISEWAN-TAIFUU KINENHI: A memorial for the 1959 typhoon
Monument of Silent Prayers: A small forested area in the middle of the large cemetery for silent meditation and contemplation
And some other scenes from the rest of the park’s landscape:
