Funeral + cremation plan

Funeral + cremation plan

Funerals and cremations will be held for pets who were members of an important family.

This plan is for those who want to have a funeral and cremation for their beloved pet, but want to keep their remains at home or in another pet reien.


● I want to have a funeral with gratitude for my beloved pet

● I want to place the ashes at home and make a memorial service

● I'm wondering where to put the ashes


It is a plan for the above people.

Myorin-ji Temple, one of the few temples that holds funerals for animals, will take responsibility for the memorial service.

① Pet dies

The sadness of losing an important family member is immeasurable.

However, care is needed to prevent damage to the body until cremation.

The corpse will begin to stiffen about two hours after you die, so close your eyes and mouth and gently bend your legs before stiffening.


After death, body fluids may come out from the mouth and anus, so it is recommended to stuff cotton wool or tissue into the mouth and anus.

Avoid direct sunlight as much as possible, put ice in an ice pack or vinyl, and apply it to your abdomen and hips to prevent damage to your body as much as possible.

If you apply dry ice directly, it may freeze, so wrap it in a towel and apply it.

In the summer, we recommend using an air conditioner to lower the room temperature to the bottom.

A cremation ceremony will be held outside the main hall using a cremation car.

Cremation is performed by a cremation craftsman with all his heart.
