    You close your eyes, breathe your last... and then what? Where does one go after they die? Well in Japan...that can get complicated. This panel focuses on death mythology and storytelling: from the fiery pits of the Jigoku to the corrupted realms of the yomi, even unto the paradise of the Pure Lands or the family kami, the various worlds and denizens of the "other" will be explored for those with a strong heart, compassion, and a thirst to know what lies beyond.
