Definitely not creepy. This cemetery-cum-park carries with it much history dating back to the 19th century. It has stopped accepting burial services since 1970s hence the total number of tombs remained at less than a thousand. This is not a top tourist attraction, being a...More

Good to visit to learn about the history of Japanese who resided in Singapore since 1861. Pleasant serene place not commonly known and well hidden in the Yio Chu Kang private estate. The flora and trees may interest the nature lovers.

I finally took the time to stop by and visit this little cemetery in my neighborhood. I wasn't disappointed. It is very well-maintained and there is on-site parking and even restrooms. The tombs are interesting and the surrounding residential homes are eclectic in size and...More

Cemeteries can be very interesting places, and if old enough can offer some unusual architectural tombs or statuary. The one common theme is that they are havens of peace and quiet, and can offer an insight into local history. The Japanese Cemetery is no exception....More
