Shizuka Prayer Garden
Shizuka Prayer Garden is a funeral home and memorial space on the sixth level of the Shin Shiawase Tower 3. It features an elevator entrance off a private parking area on layer four of the garage, and a walk-up entrance from the fifth level of the shopping concourse. The prayer garden itself extends out onto the roof of the building’s podium, sheltered from the elements by a fully enclosed glass structure reminiscent of English conservatories.
The effect is of a large amphitheatre, with seating in the garden facing inward to the building where a raised stage rests. Behind the audience is a carefully tended garden of topiaries and small spaces for private conversations.
Security/guest list checks are at the doors. Internal security is kept to a minimum. Both entrances lead into a single large well-appointed lobby. Here wait extended security details, as only a single security staff member per guest is allowed within the garden itself. Metal detectors, other sophisticated security scans everyone entering and leaving the garden itself.
