千鳥ケ淵戦没者墓苑(ちどりがふちせんぼつしゃぼえん、)は、日本の戦没者慰霊施設。第二次世界大戦の戦没者の遺骨のうち、遺族に引き渡すことができなかった遺骨を安置している。公園としての性格を有する墓地公園とされており、環境省が所管する国民公園等のひとつである。千鳥ヶ淵戦没者墓苑、国立千鳥ケ淵戦没者墓苑(こくりつちどりがふちせんぼつしゃぼえん)、国立千鳥ヶ淵戦没者墓苑とも表記される。概要千鳥ケ淵戦没者墓苑は、日本国政府が設置した戦没者慰霊施設である。第二次世界大戦の折に国外で死亡した日本の軍人、軍属、民間人の遺骨のうち、身元不明や引き取り手のない遺骨を安置する施設である。閣議決定「『無名戦没者の墓』に関する件」に基づき、1959年に創建された。政教分離の原則により、特定の宗教宗派に属さない施設とされている。東京都千代田区の千鳥ヶ淵のほとりに立地し、苑内には六角堂などの施設が建てられている。昭和天皇から下賜された骨壺に各地の遺骨を少しずつ納め、それを全戦没者の象徴として六角堂に安置している。また、納骨室や増設納骨室には、およそ35万8000柱以上の遺骨が安置されている。皇居外苑などの国民公園と同様に国が直接管理しており、敷地の維持運営を環境省が担っている。なお、苑内の増設納骨室は厚生労働省によって管理されている。

  • It is unknown who lost his life in World War II for graveyard. I think only the Yasukuni Shrine are covered in the media, but also would come to visit. Every time I visit Tokyo to visit. Feel the Goddess that marks in the title, but is now being utilized at this time.

Among the institutions out of the ashes of Japan on the occasion of the second world war who died in foreign military personnel, civilian personnel, civilians, unidentified and unclaimed remains are enshrined. A temple to enshrine the remains and monument.

  • So if you previously had a walk around the Imperial Palace bent toward the kitanomaru Park I noticed became is chidorigafuchi boat landing is located. Admission is free of charge. Free parking is also available is a seven-minute border, but actually has more parking spaces. Visited on Saturday 5 March around and surrounded by green, had been at the time of the spring was very clean. Upon arrival on the other had quietly in one long after I come a couple. In the crypt, to enshrine the remains is not available, such as flowers, Allen 堂下 mum there are at an additional cost. 1 wheel \100. As the Park is unusual, large smoking area. At the rest area rest and drinks from vending machines and sofas. Coral and stone relics and war which was displayed in the exhibition. Just looking up from a garden in the West is somewhat fun to run, and surrounded by flats. So close to Yasukuni Shrine can go together.
