Default Japanese paying others to tend to family burial sites.

This topic is complex and not for the person who doesn’t give a crap.

I begin, Japan is an ancient culture and society. Honoring your ancestors still means a lot to many here.

Obon is a traditional yearly event when most companies will give you time off to go do your duty. I live in Tokyo(outskirts) nice area, Kamakura: living here was my wife’s dream... not mine so much..

She’s from Kyushu, very very far by Japanese standards, the boonies. Her family lived there for a long time, nearly 2 k years by our Gregorian calendar. Every year, she and I go to her ancestors traditional burial tomb and clean it up, pull weeds, pay monks to chant incoherently and pay obeisance to her ancestors. If we go to Israel, she’ll do the same for me, but I’ve never been there and I’m not bogged down with that tradition, Passover is nuff for me, it’s like pulling teef.

Back to japan and my wife... some Japanese entrepreneur group called us outta the blue offering to clean up her family’s sacred spot for ~ 400 dollars us equivalent.

———
The Tokyo gov and the local gov where my wife grew said don’t come here bringing Covid 19 stay home this mourning season.
———-
Z dogg always ready to obey the law said, well, we will clean twice as good later or next year.

The call-

Some speil about paying strangers who live in the area to do what you were going to do, and say prayers too.. 4000 usd .. but you supply the liquor / rice wine and order your food offering via our catalog!

My wife is asking me... I say.. let them do it, and you pray with me here!

Peace and love restored!

My Shinkansen tix or flight tix, just for me 500 plus, car rental, chanting monks???

A bargain.

Plus, jhonny and his wife plus daughter 70 to 100 usd per night..

Economics sometimes trumps traditions and emotions.

Im not gonna prof read this.. if you get it good.. if not... better for you...

If I was a millionaire I would pay thousands of random people to attend my funeral, just it looks good on the photos.
