Sanzu River

The Sanzu River is a mythological river in Japanese Buddhism, similar to the Styx in Greek mythology. Souls of the deceased must cross the river to reach the afterlife, and the path they take depends on their actions in life. A toll of six mon is believed to be required for crossing, which is reflected in Japanese funeral customs.
