Greeting Message from Toudaisha
In Japanese, "Lighthouse" is called "Toudai" which emits light to serve as a navigational aid for boats and vessels.
We named our company "Toudaisha" because we can serve our customers like a lighthouse when they have a hard time in darkness.
Please feel free to consult us regarding the handling of cremated remains and grief support. We will do our utmost to meet your expectations.

Tachikawa Funeral Home
Our main funeral home in Tachikawa offers a peaceful home-like atmosphere. We have a large kitchen where refreshments can be prepared and friends and family can spend time together while remembering their loved one. Tachikawa Funeral Home is suitable for gatherings up to 30 people. When a larger gathering is necessary or Tachikawa is not convenient, we can access various locations throughout Japan. In times like this, friends and families appreciate the flexibility that we can offer. We have found that even though families want their loved ones repatriated to their home countries, there may be times when a visitation and service in Japan is necessary. This is especially the case where someone has lived and worked in Japan for many years.
There can be many ties to Japan which makes it appropriate to have some form of gathering or funeral service in Japan. Funeral Support Services is able to provide any type of service the family requires. We have experience dealing with all religions and faiths.
We are here to support the family and friends for however they choose to remember their loved one.
Traditional Funeral Ceremony
A Traditional Service is generally defined as one that includes a visitation period with the deceased present followed by a funeral service in a temple, church or mosque.
This is followed by cremation at a local crematorium, repatriation to the home country or in rare cases a burial service in Japan can be performed.
Remembering a Life Ceremony
The Remembering a Life Ceremony is generally defined as one which includes a formal gathering for a period of time before the ceremony often with personal mementos, photos and other remembrances present. One of the many values of this service is that it allows the creation of a service which befits the uniqueness of the person whose life is being celebrated.
A Reception Gathering is often a more informal time when friends get together and share memories and have refreshments. Family and friends enjoy the casual atmosphere and relaxing environment of this gathering to remember their loved one. This can take place with the body or cremated remains present if desired.
About President Shuhei Matsuki
I began to work in the funeral business when I was 20 years old and worked for several funeral companies at the beginning of my career.
I learned how to handle the deceased and how to communicate with families. I also learned the fundamentals of the funeral, especially the importance of providing aftercare for families.
While I was working for the funeral companies, I became interested in different types of hearses and moved to working at a hearse company.
After I built my career in this field, I established "Toudaisha Co. Ltd." which provides "one-stop funeral services" . We provide funeral preplanning, funerals, cremations, scattering of ashes and burials.
I value your support and I aim to provide the best possible service to my customers.
