Kyoto cemetery, Japan. The city of Kyoto was founded in 794. It served as the capital of Japan until the emperor moved his court to Tokyo in 1869. ‘The land of the dead,’ a place where the bodies of those who died without family were abandoned, is near Chinko-ji (also called Rokudo-san) and it marks one of the largest grave areas that existed. The area is suburban now and of the massive graveyard, only a fragment remains, but Kyoto’s largest festival of the year takes place in August, when the city observes the Bon Festival, the Japanese celebration of ancestral spirits.

Arlington National Cemetery in USA. Across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., in whose 624 acres (253 ha) have been buried the dead of the nation’s conflicts beginning with the American Civil War, as well as reinterred dead from earlier wars.
