The Japanese Cemetery Park 3

In 1969, the Singapore government handed back ownership of the cemetery to the reformed Japanese Association, which oversees the maintenance of the cemetery. Burials continued until 1973 when the Singapore government passed an ordinance preventing the further expansion of the 42 cemeteries on the island.

Very long graves, for Japanese, that is. I wonder why.
Quite an interesting information Ayush. I am amazed by the lenght of the graves!
It is so very stark.
I suppose that space is at a premium on such a relatively small state Ayush.
I find it slightly comforting that the people of Singapore can offer such reverence to those who were their enemy all those years ago, there is hope for mankind yet, if only the Middle Eastern nations could feel the same way.
I guess everyone is cremated now then?

Old graves are interesting
An interesting photo, Ayush.
