Japanese Cemetery in Tashkent, Tashkent, Uzbekistan

One of quiet streets in Tashkent, not far from its center and lively boulevards and shopping centers hosts a cemetery called "Fozil-Ota". This is a usual place where people found rest and peace, carefully groomed and neat. However, it differs from other similar places of the city in that there is a special territory inside - a complex of graves of Japanese prisoners of war who worked in Tashkent after the end of World War II.

This Japanese cemetery inside a large urban cemetery is arranged according to the rules and patterns adopted in Japan. On an established commemorative plaque with the names of buried people there is a call for future generations - "No to war!".

Near the cemetery there is a museum with the exposition telling the story of this place, and containing many photographs and written materials.
