Visiting family graves

It's windy and warm. I visited my family grave on the site of a temple. Roads and the temple were crowded because today is the first day of three consecutive holidays. Although the temple belongs to Shingon Buddhism(真言宗), followers of other religions can also have their graves on the site of the temple. So Shinto-style graves or gravestones with inscriptions in foreign languages stand there.
Family crests are also carved on the gravestones.

The subway sarin gas incident occurred on the morning of March 20th, 1995. I remember it very well. It was a tough year for us.
