Japan’s High-Tech Cemetery Uses Electronic ID Cards To Identify The Dead
Space is rare in Japan, making city planners come up with innovative ways to cram as much as possible into small spaces. This is even true with graveyard plots, which cost as much as $100,000 apiece, so architect Kiyoshi Takeyama created a neat solution for storing the dead.
Takeyama designed a room on the third floor of the Bansho-Ji Temple in Nagoya, called the ‘Suishoden’. This blindingly blue room contains 2000 glass boxes that hold the ashes of the dead.
Want to visit? You’ll need an electronic ID card to locate the correct urn — it’ll light up gold in Buddha’s image when found.
