Visit to Grave in Japan

In Japanese Buddhism, people traditionally visit their ancestral graves around equinox days. They place flowers, foods and drinks that the deceased used to love, offer incense sticks at the tombstone and tell her/him how they have been doing these days.

I also visited my father's grave on the autumnal equinox day with my mother, sister and her kids. We bumped into my cousin in front of the tombstone. My father would have been glad to listen to our stories and to meet his grandkids, whom he had never seen during his life.
