    Chiba Kashiwa-shi Sakasai 523

    ここはボタンの時季がおすすめですが、これから紅葉が始まり色の鮮やかな赤や黄色とのグラデーションが見ごろとなります。春先も桜で見ごたえあり、一年を通して四季折々の花木が心落ち着かせてくれます。きれいに整備されています。

    Chiba Matsudo-shi Tanakashinden 48-2

    地理的には松戸市内にありますが、管轄は「東京都」です。 新京成線か武蔵野線の「八柱」からバスで行けますが、霊園の中にもバスが欲しいほど広いです。 ちなみに八柱は「ヤバシラ」とは読まずに「ヤハシラ」と読みます。

    Hokkaido Sapporo-shi Minami-ku Takino 2

    I went there with my mom as it said the lavenders are in full bloom. Sky was gray though, with some rain. Very strange collections of Moai Statues, Gargoyles, stone Henge, and Buddha with lavender...

    Tokyo Hachioji-shi Motohachiojimachi 2-1623-1

    数年前に弟の居住都市に近いこちらの霊園にお墓を移して以来、毎年お盆とお彼岸にはお参りしています。 今年はコロナ禍のため約1年振りの墓参となりましたが、いつも灌木は綺麗に選定され、雑草がほとんど無い程きちんと管理されています。 墓碑や墓誌を丁寧に拭いて供花をし終え、やがて母親もこちらに埋葬されてその名も刻まれるのかと複雑な気持ちになりながら、いつも利用する東休憩所でお茶をいただきました。
