● The deceased wanted to scatter


● I want to return the ashes to nature instead of the grave


● There are no family temples or graves


● I want to close the grave without a successor to the grave


● I want to scatter the ocean, but it is difficult to get on the boat physically

For such people, "Myorin-ji Shonan Marine Memorial Service" will perform a surrogate marine scatter burial at sea.


We will bury your precious ashes together with the Buddhist memorial service.


The surrogate marine burial at sea is held in Chigasaki in Shonan, at a point more than 3 nautical miles (6 km) away from the land, and in an area away from the fishing and farms in the direction of "Karahataiwa" seen from Chigasaki "Southern Beach".


After the bones are cut, "Uba Rock" will replace the deceased's monument.


The cost of the surrogate marine scatter burial at sea is 50,000 yen for all, regardless of the size of the urn and the amount of ashes.


If you are a Buddhist and need a Dharma name, we will give you a Dharma name (○○○○ believer / Shinjo) free of charge from Myorin-ji Temple (limited to deceased people who are not Danish believers in the temple).


It is also possible to see off from the pier on the day of departure.


After the bones are scattered, we will hold a memorial service for the Buddhas who have been boned every year in Obon and on the equinoctial week in spring and autumn.


We would like you to bring the ashes directly to the temple, but if you live far away, have a physical disability, or cannot bring the ashes directly to the temple, please send the bones (remains of the ashes). We will keep your ashes by mail).


Various shipping charges, costs for powdered bones and bones, donations, permanent memorial services, and urn disposal fees are all included in the price.


If you would like to bury a part of your ashes in the permanent memorial tomb "Tensei Mausoleum" at Myorin-ji Temple, we will split it free of charge.


A copy of the burial permit is required for marine burial at sea only, and the original burial permit is required for burial at the Tensei Mausoleum.


Please be sure to apply at "Shonan Marine Memorial Service" ( before ordering.
