I realize how weird this post will sound even before I start typing. After our hike yesterday, Sonia and I stopped at a cemetery that has been on my list of places to see. Yes, a Japanese cemetery and not just any Japanese cemetary – this specific cemetery. My research told me the cemetery offered great views of the area, a pagoda, and a large Buddha. Plus, many additional statues and a picnic area.
After our hike, we took the train up one stop to the Keikyu-Nagasawa station. We then walked to the yellow star. It was about a 10-12 minute walk.
All of the gravestones are part of this cemetery!
Buddhas and Gods.
This adventure was a lesson in finding beauty in unexpected places. Ahhh… so, wabi-sabi!
