Outline

Sayama lakeside cemetery park is backed by a beautiful forest and faces the bank of Lake Sayama with the Chichibu Mountains in the distance. The community hall located at the entrance of the park is used for administration by the staff and as a rest area for visitors to the cemetery park. It is a place full of natural phenomena, where people peacefully give thought to the deceased. The Sayama forest chapel is a space for prayer with an altar facing the forest to offer prayers to the deceased resting in the cemetery park regardless of the religion.
