Two Crosses In Yokohama Foreign General Cemetery

Two crosses in cemetery

Two crosses were erected in the cemetery

Shot at Foreign General Cemetery in Yokohama, Kanagawa.

Two crosses were standing at tombs in the cemetery. It was said that about 4400 foreign people were buried in this cemetery. As hard as it was to believe, this cemetery was the precinct of a Buddhist temple originally.

On the crosses, no names of the burial persons were written. Alternatively, three characters were inscribed. At first, I didn't understand what it meant. Apparently, it was the initial of the Jesus Christ.
