shoogatsu: grave visit

We also stop by the family graves.

At the grave, the ritual consists of washing the stone, lighting candles and incence and scattering some rice.

This video shows Alf-Eivind 幸一 visiting his grandfather 卓一's and great-grandmother幸子's grave for the first time.

Hallvord, I couldnt open your Visiting Gravesmpeg.
Was impressed with the omochi making. Cant believe that each one takes such a lot of handwork! I guess you can do that all by machine now. Just imagine that half of Asias women would be fully occupied with producing enough omochi to satisfy the worlds demand!
