Mainichi Newspaper Article about Japanese Tree Burial and Sébastien P. Boret

This recent article introduces my recent book on tree burials, an ecological mode of disposing of the dead. The research and analysis draws from my research among Japanese people and their contemporary approach to ecology, family (kinship) and death. In addition, this article give a brief summary of my eduction in the UK (Oxford) and my current position as assistant professor of the International Research Institute of Disaster Science.

I would like to thank Mr Takyasu Ogura of the Mainichi London office who authored this article.
