At the Eko-in for Mon-chan’s service
Today we brought Mon-chan over to the Eko-in in Ryogoku to leave her for cremation and join with other pet owners in a Buddhist service for their recently passed away friends.
The Eko-in dates back to 1657 and is well know for taking care of deceased pets. The Ryogoku neighborhood is also where the sumo stadium is, as well as the Tokyo History Museum. It’s only 4 stops on the Sobu-line from Shinkoiwa, my station.
The urn with Mon’s ashes should be ready to be picked up on Wednesday.
Here are some photos from today. You can click on individual photos to see them larger.
That’s really fascinating Doug! I wish that they had something like that here.
May she Rest In Peace!
What a wonderful place. Mon’s spirit is in good hands. Again sorry for the loss.
