The Hazuki Family Altar | Shenmue The Animation

The Hazuki Family Altar contains memorial tablets for Ryo's deceased father, Iwao Hazuki, and his mother.

In a close-up shot, the kanji characters for "father" and "mother" can be seen on the left and right memorial tablets respectively, written in a cursive-style script that has quite a different appearance from standard lettering.

His father's name, Iwao, can also be found written there.

Yamagishi-san visits the family altar (Shenmue The Animation Episode Two).

In the game, the kanji of his mother's name, Akane, is also present but interestingly this does not seem to be the case in the anime's portrayal. It should be noted that the deceased's worldly name is not always written on such tablets.

In a previous post, we wrote about the Hazuki Family Altar and the significance of the various elements. Read about it here.
