Aoyama, which means "blue mountain", cemetery, is the burial site of 100,000 tombs. Created in 1872, it covers some 26,000m². Among its illustrious residents are Inukai Tsuyoshi, Prime Minister assassinated in 1932, and Shiga Naoya (1883-1971), a modern novelist. It is also the resting place of the ashes of the famously faithful four-legged Hachiko, buried next to his master Professor Ueno Eisaburo. The cemetery also, unusually, has a foreign section.
