Broome is home to the South Sea Pearl, the finest ever in the whole world. It was this pursuit of pearls that led to the formation of the Japanese Cemetery. The largest Japanese cemetery in Australia, around a 1000 Japanese divers, who lost their lives at sea are buried here to honor their significant contribution to the pearling industry. A large stone obelisk lists all those who were a victim of the cyclones 1908 and 1935 whilst at sea.
- Right next to the Japanese Cemetery lies the Chinese Cemetery which is definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful! Some graves dating back to 1914 from what I could understand and the biggest Japanese cemetery outside of Japan! Apparently.
跟著旅遊導覽從宿舍走著走著, 就到這邊了! 一開始有點嚇到, 但旁邊有房子有居民在生活, 看大家都很自然的樣子, 也就不害怕了. 有種被融入生活的情境, 非常特別~
