A small additional offer for those players who play - or plan to play some time - in a Japanese themed neighborhood: this small cemetery is built completely without CC and I tried my best to make it look like those Buddhist graveyards that I had seen while strolling virtually in Google street view of Tokyo. In Tokyo it's totally common sight having these cemeteries in the middle of the city, surrounded by high-rises, so it fits into city neighborhoods, but because of its traditional look, it might fit into smaller, more rural Asian worlds, as well.

Although I left several vacant gravesites for your deceased sims, it might be a too small place for generations of dozens of sims' gravestones, but it reflects my gameplay, I only place the stones which belong to my favorite families, and I use the graveyard mostly for the mausoleum functions.

I had to use the Shang Simla mausoleum from WA, which is not necessarily authentic I'm afraid, but as an apology, I built a small pavilion by the entrance, as a replica of a pavilion that I had seen precisely by a cemetery entrance in Tokyo street view. Compensating the lack of a pond, I planted death flowers and a life fruit bush. I tried to include the real-life details, from the entrance announcement board to the little stone lions by a grave (I really saw those lions inside a graveyard!). No active ghosts included in this lot.

PLAYTEST: Although the gravestones are arranged by heavily using 'moveobjects', my sims can "Mourn" them, and it doesn't cause routing complaints (at least in my game).

EPs needed: the most used EP objects on the lot are the roof decor brick from Island Paradise, and the fence farming post from University Life, also most objects and terrain paints are from World Adventures and Ambitions. To a lesser extent I used Generations, Seasons, Showtime and Late Night (vampiric sanctum bed inside the pavilion from LN).
