Prayer For The Chasm of The Era

Here is the Negishi Foreign Cemetery in Yokohama. There are several foreign cemeteries in Yokohama, but the existence of this place is not well known even by locals. Buried here are unknown foreigners who do not even visit the graves. A victim of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. And I would like to emphasize that these are 800 to 900 mixed-race infants who were abandoned after the Second World War. The last is a memorial monument. I strongly want you to know this place, its history, the cries of mothers and babies.
