Located in the chic neighborhood of Aoyama is the sprawling Aoyama Cemetery. Opened in 1874, it is home to the graves of many of Tokyo’s most historically and culturally important people, and during the Meiji Period it was the main location for a large number of foreigners’ graves.
Although there are still funerals held on a regular basis in the cemetery, it is open to the public, and is a pleasant place to walk around. The park is full of cherry trees, and in spring the area does become a popular spot for cherry blossom viewing parties.
