What is goshuin?

A goshuin (red stamp) is a seal stamp given to worshippers and visitors to Buddhist temples.

Rev.Kumazawa, the head priest of the Myorinji temple is an Buddhist painting artist who is well known overseas.

 

The seal stamps are often collected in books called goshuincho that are sold at temples.

You can purchase one at Myorinji.

goshuincho

There are two types of goshuin at Myorin-ji Temple.

1. Write directly on the goshuincho.

Permanent memorial grave start at 100,000 yen

 


"Tensei-byo" is for the following people

No children or successors
 


Those who want to have a memorial service, but who have difficulty holding a grave for expenses
 


Those who have the remains of a loved one but no grave
 


For those who are thinking about having the grave
 


Who likes quiet grave, or those who like the sea

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.

If you can not bring your ashes to us, you can  send  it to us

If you live far away or have physical disabilities, such as those who cannot bring your ashes directly to us, we will take care of your ashes by "Sokotsu" the bone transfer.


After applying through the internet, you will receive a bone transfer set from Myorinji.


You can put your remains in the bone transfer box and mail it to us.


All bone transfer costs are included in the fee. We accept ashes from the whole country by mail.

A funeral ceremony, cremation, graves  for animals

Pets and animals who live with us are members of an important family.

 


We believes that a funeral ceremony is necessary for the departure of pets.
 


It's not only for pets ... but also for the bereaved.



"Myorinji Pet Funeral" is dedicated to helping a pet who has been an important family member set off.
