Theme Day, Cemetery / Tombstone

Theme Day, Cemetery / Tombstone
This photo was taken in the middle of Tokyo and well polished tombstones are arranged in a patch of the property of a Buddhist temple, dotting Tokyo. Today such tombstones are surrounded by a tall building in Tokyo. By the way, Tokyo looks modern but has still remained some old customs, for example, visiting our graves once or more in a year to show our respects for our ancestors.

More than 100 City Daily Photo blogs participate in this theme day. Do pay them a visit but remember that due to time difference you might not see the proper photo.

At least they built the city around the cemetery. In my photo I showed where my city turned a cemetery into a park!

I think your photo is great because it shows the respect people have for those who have been buried there.

I'm not sure, if I hadn't seen this photo [or the one on your other site] that I would have realized that this is a grave site.

I like how simple and elegant this is. It is also amazing that it stands right in the middle of the city.
