Ryoko’s mother’s family name is Fujii, not to be confused with Father’s family name Fujita.
Recently, paternal grandmother passed away, paternal grandfathers are both long passed.
In this case we visited Ohaka (grave) of Ichiro’s maternal great-grandfather (Ryoko’s grandfather obv) with the in-laws/parents to wash and clean, offer a prayer and introduce Ichi.
I don’t know much of his backstory – enough to riff at least – i’ll connect some more pieces for a later update for curiosity seekers.
Note: there is a panorama of the epically endless cemetery and massive crematorium (under expansion) plus family photos to include > this is a reminder to add at some point for posterity and whatnot.
