Japanese Cemetery, Broome

The Japanese cemetery is beautifully neat. Nine hundred and nineteen Japanese are buried here, killed by pearl diving mishaps or cyclones in earlier times. Cockies squawk in the gum trees. Most of the headstones are inscribed pieces of the unique local stone. It may not be their homeland. But it is a truly special resting place.
