** The initial encoffinment Daigo takes part in; after a [[spoiler: rough introduction with the departed's husband, they witness him break down over his wife's carefully and compassionately prepared body; he later stops them following the proceedings and offers apologies for his earlier attitude, going on to state his wife never looked so beautiful, and offering Daigo and Boss food]].



** His job isn't just creepy, it's ''unclean and contaminating'', something the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burakumin Burakumin]]'' - the Japanese equivalent of India's "untouchables" - do, and for a "normal" person like Daigo to do this is very {{Squick}}y for everyone (except the CoolOldGuy [[spoiler: because he works at the crematorium]]).

** [[spoiler: When Daigo's wife Mika, upon witnessing morticians from a rival firm mistreating Daigo's father's body, declares that her husband will take over the encoffining, adding proudly that "he is a professional."]]

* TearJerker: And how!

to:

* TearJerker: And how!Most of the movie, a given when you consider that it involves a lot of death and resulting heartache. [[spoiler: Perhaps one of the most jarring moments is the whole of the bathhouse owner's coffining. It occurs just as Daigo's wife returns, and the old woman is the mother of Daigo's friend. On top of that, we find out that the old man who likes to play chess is a cremator. Before the whole process, we are treated to his own, grim analysis of the irony behind his last meeting with the old woman and his role in life.]]
