Abstract :This paper uses a case study of Makurazaki City and clues obtained from local surveys of public cemeteries conducted in the surrounding area to consider the meanings contained in the "public" of public cemeteries and the kinds of mentalities inherent in hakamairi (visiting the fam ily grave). Having alluded to the relationship among kagezen (a tray of food for temporarily ab sent people), osonae (an offering to the dead—people who will never return), and hakamairi, all of which are customs that conceal gender, this paper further examines how, in its capacity as an action that is highly visible among others in the public sphere, hakamairi relates to changes in the significance of the "public" in public cemeteries, as well as the kinds of mentalities people have when praying for the dead. Furthermore, it presents the possibility that hakamairi helps to develop among people a shared mentality of public cemeteries being shared resting places for both the deceased with whom one was close with during their lifetime and those with whom one was not, and as places where one also prays for a diverse range of people.
