Photographer's Note

This is a memorial gravestone at a Japanese temple.

Most temples in Japan have an area of these memorials to remember the loss of an infant at birth or at a very young age.

They are decorated with the little aprons you can see in the picture and just like the gravestones of adults food and drink is also sometimes left.

A colorful picture for us, but sorrow beyond our understanding for another.
