My name is Yuusuke Wada. I’m a funeral business consultant, a researcher of Reform of Death and I prepare the End of Life Journey.
Today’s talk is about funeral business trade show in Japan.
I’m your host Yuusuke Wada, funeral business podcaster of Japan and you’re listening to the BGM called “君はもういない” , the direct translation would be that “you are no longer her”, meaning “I miss you”.
In the last episode, I stated I will podcast once a week. Sorry, I missed the deadline post yesterday. I had the manuscript written but couldn’t record.
Funeral business trade show in Japan.
I’ve written many posts on this subject in both Japanese and English.
But this will be the first podcast in English speaking on the subject.
Initially, there was only one event that was for the public. Public meaning the industry people. There were private events held by the funeral companies and their suppliers before that but not a conglomerate event organized by the publisher called “Sogo Unicom”.
Sogo Unicom sold many magazines, including funeral industry information, such as the trends, newly opened parlors, and crematoriums and such.
