The other day I took a stroll over to Zoshigaya Cemetary, one stop down the Arakawa street-car line from where I live. I meant to only shoot photos, but soon realized that photos couldn’t do the scale of the place any justice, so I decided to take some footage as well:
A few notes that didn’t make the final cut:
– Soseki Natsume the Japanese novelist (he wrote ‘I am a Cat’ and ‘Kokoro’) is buried in Zoshigaya Cemetary
– I came to Zoshigaya Cemetary some time around New Year’s late at night, it was very dark since it has no lamps, so very eerie.
– There are some graves with English on them, but I couldn’t find them this time around.
