Aoyama Bochi, Tokyo

Draper

Some Meiji and Taisho-era graves in the foreigners' section of Aoyama Cemetery, Tokyo, are scheduled for removal unless family members are found who will pay the maintenance fees. A small group of people, both foreigners and Japanese nationals, have formed the Foreign Section Trust to work for the preservation of these graves as historical monuments.

In order to build support for their cause, the Trust, in conjunction with some people on the JapanBloggers mailing list are about to hold a hanami (cherry blossom viewing party) at the cemetery. Jim O'Connell has the details.
