The final resting place for the vast majority of people, a cemetery or urn for ashes serves, even in exotic Japan. But it is in Japan that the dead before cremation can stay in the penultimate refuge - hotel for the dead, invented by the resourceful lord Hisayushi Teramura. Why do you need a hotel for those who no longer need anything, and what service the departed can count on - read on.
The thing is that in Japan there is very little free land - after all, more than 127 million people live in a small country! And about 1.6 million of them die every year. As you understand, cemeteries in Japan are not very popular: after all, thousands of hectares of land, which are so necessary for the living, will have to be allocated to the last refuge for the dead. The most common method of burial here is cremation. But even she still needs to wait: there are queues in the crematoria, and considerable ones. What is to be done for a family in which someone recently died? Put a dear dead man in the center of the main room and wait for his turn for a week? No, go to the hotel for the dead.
Hisayushi Teramura built " penultimate resting place"near Yokohama: here the queues for cremation reach 4 days, and at this time the hotel for the dead is very relevant. The comfort in the rooms here is minimal: clean white walls, a granite table for flowers and a refrigerator in the center. Of course, the room is not needed for the convenience of the deceased, but for his grieving loved ones.
Oddly enough, the hotel also has a bar - have you already imagined the living dead drinking Bloody Mary? In reality, the bar is needed not by the guests, but by their visitors: sometimes grief over deceased loved ones can only be weakened by alcohol.
Every day of stay in " not the last refuge"will cost the relatives of the deceased 12,000 yen (156 dollars) - perhaps this is not so much in return for the inconvenience that a corpse can create in a small Japanese apartment. Inventive hotel owner Hisayushi Teramura has already set the business on a grand scale: there are enough visitors. on the whole, he is satisfied with his salary and has nothing against work - they only complain about the cold, sometimes downright grave.
Rogvolodovich, not Rurikovich: Why Prince Yaroslav the Wise did not love the Slavs and did not spare his brothers
In the official historiography, Yaroslav the Wise for a long time appeared to be an almost sinless ruler, the creator of legality in the Russian lands. In our time, he is already accused of sending several of his brothers to the next world in order to occupy the Kiev throne. But was it only the desire for power that drove Prince Yaroslav? If you look at the history of his family, then everything that happens is more like revenge … to his father. Bloody revenge for bloody atrocity

Recently, the owls are confidently pushing kittens from the pedestal of mimic champions. Their photos are going viral, wandering around the Internet. All the owls did for this was just take a nap. Do you think they do it while sitting? Far from it! They sleep face down, as if they were having an incredibly stormy night with copious libations. At the same time, they look incredibly touching and touching
She did not promote the Germans, did not ruin Russia, did not leave the course of Peter: what is Anna Ioannovna accused of in vain?
Anna Ioannovna, niece of Peter the Great, went down in history with a terrible image. For what they just did not reproach the second ruling queen of Russia: for tyranny and ignorance, craving for luxury, indifference to state affairs and for the fact that the dominance of the Germans was in power. Anna Ioannovna had a lot of bad character, but the myth about her as an unsuccessful ruler who gave Russia to be torn apart by foreigners is very far from the real historical picture
Not only people in particular and Humanity in general have their own history, but also the things that surround them. For example, with ordinary chairs. After all, their existence is directly related to people. And each of them has a story to tell. Chairs are the subject of a new photo project from Karen Ryan called "Body U.S.A."
