What form of grave can be built to be beloved for a longer time and that will inspire more visits?
Until now, Japanese graves have looked dark and uniform.
We have thus created more individualized gravestones that tell the story of the departed loved one’s life and that symbolize the brightness of that life.This symbol is the butterfly, a motif in Buddhism that is said to be a reincarnation of the dead and also to represent the cycle of reincarnation itself.
