Photographer's Note

This is the graveyard on top of Mt. Koya-San, about an hour and a half north of Kyoto. Buried in this cemetery are a number of famous samurai, as well as members of the Tokugawa clan, and Tokugawa Iieyasu himself. The whole cemetery is permeated by green moss, huge fir trees, and streams, making it truly a scene where life and death coexist.
