Cremain Library

Shinjuku temple, located in Tokyo, is an ultra-high-tech Buddhist temple and cemetery. From Icon Magazine:

spanning several floors in the heart of the building is an off-limits high-tech vault system that can hold the cremated remains of up to 7,000 people – it has already acquired more than 300 since opening last year. After visitors swipe their entrance cards, family urns are automatically transported to the altar of one of eight viewing booths in the basement, alongside electronic photographs of the deceased.

Sounds expensive. Scattering ashes seems to me like both a cheaper and better option.

An interesting use of cremains that I've seen is when your ashes are mixed into special concrete and cast into forms that become part of a living, growing reef. There are a few places in the U.S. where this can be done, but the most appealing location to me is in the state of Hawaii:
