Some patches of cemetery



These pictures were shooted by a skyscraper in Roppongi, one of biggest entertainment districts in the middle of Tokyo.

Careful looking of the above picture makes you find some graveyards or cemetery, surrounded by modern buildings.

Some patches of graveyards exist in the middle of Tokyo because some small temples are there still now. (Most of them are not allowed to enter for people who don't have their ancestor's grave.)

I guess the city planners did their best to accommodate the facts of life. Very interesting and great shots.

Roppongi is the fist town that I start working with this giant company. The the department move to Kawasaki. Later I joined the project team and move to Kamiyacho. So the Roppoingi was my playground in that part of life. It's been changed so
much since then...

Thanks for photo.

Impressive! and very interesting. I love the way Japanese people go forward without forgetting the past and the tradition.

bunyamin: that's right. This is shooted from over 70 floors height and looks like google map.
w: cemetery have been there and experienced the dramatic change of this city.
ben: Roppongi is a memorable place for you, isn't it? Roppongi has dramatically changed. Boeicho is replacing office buildings with luxury residence and Ritz-Carlton hotel. Tokyo Uni seisan kenkyu-jo is replacing New National Museum.
ovelikios: thank you for your compliment. The lifestyle is rather modern here, but some traditonal custum has still remained.

This is fascinating Macky, in South Shields they are busy exhuming some bodies from an old graveyard to build a new supermarket on top of it!
