Sea burial ceremony for 50,000yen

In recent years, those who do not have family graves and wish for sea burial are increasing.

However, it is said that some of the bereaved families feel lonely and guilty after doing sea burial as the deceased wanted.

For such people, the head priest of the  Myorinji, who is also a first-class marine pilot, steers the ship himself and performs sea burial with the Buddhist memorial service.


Myorinji has hundreds of years of sea burial history since the temple is just a minute from the Oiso beach.

The sea burial is carried out in Chigasaki Shonan, a point more than 3 nautical miles (6 km) from the land, and in an area away from the fishery and aquaculture area in the direction of "Eboshiiwa" seen from Chigasaki "Southern Beach".

After the sea burial, the “Eboshiiwa” replaces the monument of the deceased.
