Spreading Ashes 2013/3/3 10:33
I don't believe I am posting this question, but the Japanese tend to have something for everything. Is there such a thing as a company that receives urns from the US and spread the ashes of me? I have no family and wish to be returned to my mother's homeland to be spread after cremation.

spread the ashes of me

From what I have heard about death in Japan it is seems to be forbidden to spread ashes.

There are companies in Japan who spread ashes at sea, in appropriate areas (not near swimming beaches, not right in the path of boats, etc) I just can't find anyone who says they are willing to accept such requests from overseas. I don't know where you live, but maybe you could do searches in the state of Hawaii for such a contractor? The reason why I say that is because there are many Hawaiians of Japanese origin, I thought there may be other people with similar wishes as you.

Certainly, there are companies than can spread cremated remains to ocean and mountains. Do you know where your mother came from originally? I can look up for you if you want to contact them.

This company does that for you to the Tokyo Bay or to the mountain they own.
