Cemetery park put up a notice to tell Pokemon Go players not to enter the ground to respect those who rest in peace

The ‘publicnoticesg’ Instagram account, known for posting pictures of notices put up in public spaces in Singapore, recently posted about a notice put up by The Japanese Association in the Japanese Cemetery Park located at Hougang, Singapore.

The notice urged Pokemon Go players to “please respect” those who rest in peace and “do not enter the ground for Pokemon Go.” At the top of the notice is a big, red circle and cross with the message “No! Pokemon Go”.

To give you some context regarding the Japanese Cemetery Park, it’s a 29,359 square metre park containing 910 tombstones of Japanese people in Singapore, including civilians, soldiers and even convicted war criminals executed in Changi Prison. It was established as a cemetery in 1891, but was turned into a memorial park in 1987.

Whether or not it’s appropriate to have a Pokestop at a cemetery is debatable, since some would argue that it could bring more people over to learn about the history, but players should really stop coming to the park, as they nicely put up a notice.
