Funeral traditions of Japan

 

Naughty children screaming ran into a memorial hall. They did not notice the portrait in the frame, no flowers mourning nor grieving relatives who served, we left the hall, preparing for the ceremony tonight. Almost upsetting the owner of the coffee shop, I ran to catch up with their child. Catching it in your arms, I drew his attention to the center of the room and on the portrait of a woman. And, for a while thinking how to explain the situation two-year-old, said: “See that woman? She died. There, in the street, are her relatives. It is very sad that she died. There is no need to run. This is not good.” up To this point we have touched upon the topic of death of animals and plants, but that the death and the person he heard for the first time. I didn’t know how he will react to it. His reaction surprised me. He said: “I mean “Sorry”!” . I paused again – this time over whether two-year-old to apologize for what he did out of ignorance. And said “If you want to!” . He wanted. He turned to the portrait and said to the dead woman, in Japanese: “Excuse me!” . Then bowed to her and took my hand.
