Throwback Thursday

kuroda family graves fukuoka

黒田家墓所 – Kuroda Family Graves (June 2013)

Throwing it back to the 17th Century today.

To the victor belong the spoils! Back in the early 17th Century, Japan was going through some changes. The Kurodas backed Tokugawa and were rewarded with Fukuoka. Three Kurodas were buried here on the Tochoji grounds, and a little over 300 years later a giant cube of an office building was built to look down at their graves.

Uppsala Old Cemetery

Uppsala Gamla Kyrkogård (Sweden – July 2019)

The professor (also a children’s doctor) has had a fairly recent burial for such an old cemetery. Also, it’s always interesting to see the uniqueness of a different country’s cemetery. This one had a zen vibe to it.

Tjørnuvík, Faroe Islands

Unbeknownst to me at the time I was taking this photo of a lovely cemetery in the surfing town (population 54) of Tjørnuvík, there is also a Viking cemetery (discovered in 1956 and dating to about 950) in town. I had no internet in the Faroe Islands so it’s a shame that I couldn’t look things up as I journeyed from town to town. Had I known in advance that I wouldn’t have internet, I would have done more research before reaching the place.
