About this sight

This temple's name loosely translates as "Practice of Perfection in the Six Realms of Existence", the realms being a place where souls wander before attaining enlightenment. The temple is situated near the Toribe Cemetery. Historically, those who couldn’t afford a burial would be unceremoniously dumped at the cemetery's entrance, but the main priest of Rokuharamitsu-ji Temple would administer rites and lay the homeless bodies' souls to rest.
