Gaijin meets Japanese funeral

| | Comments (1)

I was browsing the web for Japanese funeral sites when I came across this Youtube video made by a foreigner (he sounds British) who went to a Japanese funeral:

It's interesting to compare his experiences with mine in a Japanese Funeral. In particular, he really focuses in on the funeral donation which is a common at Japanese funerals, but rarer in most Western traditions. I didn't include the donation table in my film, which I now regret. Maybe a future cut will include this.


Hallo Karen, I am British and suspect the maker of the film is Australian in fact. Nevertheless, interesting to know. I am now off to watch your own video.

I climb with several Japanese people in my current city in the Netherlands, so these seem to be the things they don't mention about Home. (Not that I've discussed Brit funerals with them either of course.)

Congratulations on a consistently interesting set of web-pages btw.
