We took the Haunted Tokyo Tour on the last day of the New Year week with one of the stops being a cemetery that houses one of Japan’s most famous painters Hokusai Katusika. I picked one of his most famous pieces The Great Wave off Kanagawa for my New Years cards this year.
The cemetery was filled with stories (thanks to a great guide). Many had paid tribute to their ancestors with sake …
and incense …
These flowers caught my eye, a stark contrast to the headstones they adorned.
One more angle.
A solemn place brought alive with color.
