Yes, there is one in Singapore and it’s located among the private residences along Chuan Hoe Avenue, off Yio Chu Kang road. It is also one of the largest Japanese cemeteries in Southeast Asia and was established in 1891 by three brothel owners. The souls who laid to rest here included Japanese businessmen, war soldiers, tradesmen, professionals and prostitutes. Today, it is a memorial park and promoted as a heritage site to tourists and visitors.

What’s left of the railway and tracks have almost been completely taken over by nature. Built in 1965, the 14km Jurong Railway was meant for trains to carry cargoes to the industrial estate of Jurong. However, due to under usage, it became defunct in the 1990s.
