We ended up winding through some back streets in the neighborhood and stopped at a convenience store to buy some water. Across the street was a small area surrounded by high walls. Curious, I peered over the wall and this is what I saw. At first I thought it might be a shop for burial monuments, but then I saw the flowers and cups of liquor left behind and realized that it is actually a tiny cemetery—located right in the middle of a cramped residential neighborhood. Space is at a premium in Tokyo, and apparently cemeteries such as this one are not uncommon.
