Japan's Biggest Funeral Exhibition is about the Art of Dressing the Dead



Life Ending Industry Expo, the biggest funeal exhibition in Japan, is a special event where participants, known as undertaker, take part in dressing the dead. According to the Japanese ethnic religion of Shinto, dressing the deceased purifies their souls before their journey to the other world. This special dressing is actually done in front of the close relatives.

   The Life Ending Industry Expo tests the ancient art of dressing the dead, and the contestants dress live volunteers on the stage with funeral music played in the background. The judges observe the hand movements and the ability to dress the body without leaving bare skin.

   As reported by the Mailonline, there are about 2000 undertakers with varied skills to meet the huge demand to carry on the task due to Japan's ageing population.
