A sombre and iconic Cemetery with highly manicured lawns, landscape and endless rows of Sakura trees. If you are here for admiring the annual Spring Sakura blossoms, highly recommend to arrive as close as possible to opening time as it will start to fill up and get busy very quickly.
This is a very large Cemetery and you can easily get lost, there is a complimentary bus that roams the whole Cemetery. Along with many toilets dotted around. Parking is free, however it is highly recommended that you only park in the designated parking spots.

It is a vast reien located about 16km east of Mt. Fuji. It is a public interest incorporated foundation established in 1965. There are large restaurants and private rooms in the Fujimi Kaikan and the annex. There is also a separate chapel where you can hold ceremonies.
The Japan Writers' Association has built a "literary tomb" in the reien. There is a literary hermitage (Futatsutei) near the administration building, and portraits of literary figures by Takeyoshi Tanuma are on display (as of 2020).
Most of the graveyards have unified standards, and they are orderly and refreshing, and everyone has an equal impression. A lot of big carps swim in the gourd pond park in the center, and there is a lotus pond of Oga Hass where you can relax.
There is an Odakyu grave visit bus tour from Shinjuku (reservation required, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, etc.), and if it is smooth, it will arrive in 2 hours, but on weekends Tomei is usually crowded. The holiday season can take up to 4 hours.
Chuo-dori, which is lined with giant cherry trees, has been selected as one of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. It is spectacular when it is in full bloom, but it is crowded with cherry blossom viewing cars.
