Imperial, California - Death is big business in Japan and the competition is fierce, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. The population over there is aging at a quickening pace, and so is the demand for funerals and funeral services.
In fact, innovative Japanese entrepreneurs have come up with new ways to cash in on that demand. Take the funeral parlor that has begun offering drive-thru funerals. Meanwhile, the frenzy to cash in on the business of dying caused quite a stir not long ago when Amazon began offering a rent-a-monk service and a competitor began offering the services of a robotic “monk.” Who was it that said, dying is easy; comedy is hard?
