The Japanese Cemetery Park is located in the private residential estate at Chuan Hoe Avenue. It was established in 1891 as a burial ground, making it one of the oldest remaining cemeteries in Singapore. It has been closed for burial since 1973 but remains a spiritual ground where Japanese residents and tourists visit to pay respects to the deceased and to stroll amidst the tranquil setting.
The cemetery holds the stories of those who have found their final resting place here. It is time-stamped by memories of the Karayuki-san, brothel owners, businessmen, doctors, writers and all who once made their home on this island.
The cemetery is a photography hot spot.
Wedding couples, tourists and Instagrammers love posing under the beautiful bougainvillea archways.
It also used to be frequented by Pokemon-GO players, until a sign was put up to ask visitors to refrain from doing so.
