  • Very peaceful cemetery park indeed. The walkway is slightly run down, but otherwise the place is well maintained. The place contains the rich heritage of Japanese culture that has been in Singapore since the pre-independence era. It is a wonderful place to visit to learn more about the first few Japanese who visited Singapore.
  • Very peaceful cemetery set a beautifully kept park. The Japanese Cemetery is a very respectful commemoration to the members of the Japanese community throughout the history in Singapore. Some information is in English, obviously graves and most other signs are in Japanese. Just go armed with a full phone battery to take pictures and Google the fascinating history.
