Uhhh....
Visit more cemeteries. Benches are very common in America too.
But visit more cemeteries for the reasons stated in the article. They are just parks after all.

The original idea was they should be parks that just happened to have the dead in them. Why do you think people spent so much time working on tombstone art & clever epitaphs to see & read. People would walk around & comment on them. & Yes, they would bring their children to play with the dead siblings & parents.

My in-Laws decided to have the 6 siblings stump-up for a mausoleum that sleeps a dozen & has room for Family pets. If future generations decide on cremation, it'll be a gift for generations. (The Roman Church says cremation is okay now!)

I heard the opposite - its opening pretty much bombed. People said it was gayer than the plane it rode in on.

Besides me personally, my plan is to avoid the local Cemetery & be Cremated w/my Ashes being scattered on my own Property.
No permits & no having to pay for a 6" hole either.
If you wanna sit & reflect fine (water view) but bring your own chair or bench etc......

Nice place to visit but few want to stay there.

Hanging out in a graveyard in Nagasaki? Well, I don't see any way that could possibly turn out badly.

Yep. Decent (not amazing, but good) book on the history of the modern "park cemetery", versus when westerners used to just bury them in churchyards (which quickly filled up, and had remains disinterred and dumped in the Thames, etc to make room):

Book is geared towards industry insiders and architects, not necessarily laypeople, but still interesting enough as a skim for said laypeople.
