Crematorium is overbooked in Kanagawa

A Japanese citizen living in Kanagawa tweeted crematorium in her area is overbooked because of too much death.


「神奈川県に住む知り合いが亡くなった。しかし葬儀が10日後だと言うので不思議に思って聞いたら、火葬場が混んでいて、ダビに出来ない」と言う。死因は心筋梗塞による突然死。先週も神奈川県の友人が突然死した。葬儀社に問い合わせたら今は死者が多く火葬場が混んでいて一週間以上待たされるという Source


One of my friends in Kanagawa died, but the funeral is in no less than 10 days from now. I wondered why. The family say, the crematorium is too full, can’t cremate him as it should be.

The person died of cardiac infarct, suddnely. Last week, another friend of mine died in Kanagawa too. I called the funeral company, they said, now they have a lot of funeral schedules, have to have customers wait for loner than a week.


About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
