We have some customs of a funeral.


I add some customs of a funeral because some people have an interest of Japanese funerals. When we attend a funeral, we should wear black outfit such as kimono and suits. Men need to use black ties and black bag for women. We generally offer about 5000 yen to 10000 yen, but the amount depends on their relation to the deceased. Families and relatives generally offer about 10000 yen to 50000 yen. We enclose old bills in a special envelope when offering. The chief mourner serves lunch or dinner after a funeral to attendees.
