The founder of  the company where I’m being dispatch has died. He was in the middle of 70’s. Since in this area he’s quite famous (for making one of the biggest company in this area).

Last week the coffin car make a Trip to the whole company (Headquarter and factory all of them around 6 spot in this area). And the whole employee assemble together in the court yard to pay the respect.

After that day, they provide some place (with buddhism way if I’m not mistaken) to mourn for him. basically we need to get our hand at some grain and put it in the place provided.

And yesterday (3rd July) I went to the funeral place to give the flower and last respect. They rent the city hall for full 3 days , the first 2 days is only to for preparation and the 3rd day is the main funeral event. This time they use the internet connection to have teleconference between headquarter and branches in whole japan.

Well this was my first japanese funeral.
