Things you can do to prevent “cremation without knowing it” Start your end of life with “Aka Deer”
*[A must-see for those who can’t continue or end their life! ] Get your own end-of-life task list and relieve your worries and worries about after death*
“Akashika” is a new end-of-life service that helps you end your end-of-life life in the shortest possible way.
On June 6, 2024, Waterhuman Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo), represented by entrepreneur monk Ryo Shintani, began providing a new end-of-life service, “Akashika.” Conventional services such as Ending Notes provide an opportunity for people to take the first step towards ending their lives, but they do not provide enough support to help them finish their lives, and as a result, the issue is that they end up being put on the back burner. Therefore, Akashika provides a list of end-of-life tasks that are optimized based on the user’s asset status and outlook on life and death, and also provides a variety of useful support to help users complete their end-of-life life in the shortest possible time. Anyone can create an end-of-life task list for free and use paid support as needed, so it can be used by a wide range of people, from those with low to high end-of-life needs.

◆ Problems solved by red deer
According to the results of a survey that investigated the level of interest in end-of-life activities, more than 70% of people over 50 answered that they were interested in end-of-life activities, but only a few were actually able to continue their end-of-life activities. It is said that it will remain at about 20%. When we investigated the reasons why people were unable to start or continue their end of life life, we discovered the existence of four walls.
four walls that stand in your way
Currently, ending notes, which are synonymous with end-of-life activities, provide an opportunity for people to take the first step towards ending their lives, but there is not enough support when actually filling them out. As a result, many people are unable to cross the four walls. This situation not only causes great pain to people who are planning to end their lives, but also imposes enormous effort and costs on the families left behind after death, as well as on governments and local governments.

◆ Overview of red deer
As the first service release, Akashika will begin providing two services that will help people who want to end their lives to overcome the four barriers.
・ *Your own end-of-life task list* (free)
・ *Support to help you end your life in the shortest possible time* (charged) Your personalized end-of-life task list is optimized based on your asset situation and outlook on life and death, and helps you understand the overall picture of your end-of-life needs. It also provides detailed instructions and precautions for completing each task, saving you the trouble of looking up the necessary information yourself. We provide a variety of support to help you complete your end-of-life journey in the shortest possible time, including exclusive chat support to resolve any questions you may have regarding your end-of-life life, and a service that introduces you to the most suitable specialist as needed. We plan to gradually expand this support in response to user demand.

The model is that anyone can use the end-of-life task list creation for free, and then pay for paid support as needed, so you can use it in the following ways.

◆ Background of the birth of red deer
The red deer logo is characterized by the “i” resembling a candle. The service name Akashika is a coined word that combines “visualize (kashika) the evidence of life (akashi)” and “light (akashi)” and “fire (ka).” Ending your life can be compared to groping your way through the darkness, but Akashika aims to provide a service that illuminates the path for such people.

Shintani, the development manager, is an entrepreneur who develops red deer at Waterhuman Co., Ltd., and is also active as a Jodo Buddhist monk. During that time, I had the opportunity to speak with a woman who had lost her husband of many years. After her husband’s funeral, she was busy with many formalities and arrangements, and it seems that she spent more time and effort than expected. In particular, there were many things she couldn’t handle on her own, such as organizing her husband’s assets, contracted services, and digital accounts, and she was physically and mentally exhausted. If her husband’s end of life had been carried out properly, her burden would have been greatly reduced. Through this experience, Shintani decided to take on the challenge of end-of-life care as an entrepreneur, leading to the development of Akashika.

Furthermore, we believe that “ending your life will make your life more creative,” and we believe that ending your life is not necessarily an activity for the benefit of those left behind. End of life means facing one’s own death, and facing death means facing one’s current way of life. Generally speaking, when we talk about
end-of-life living, we tend to think of it as something that is done by the so-called elderly after retirement, but in this day and age where anything can happen, it is necessary for the working generation to actively engage in end-of-life activities as well. With this in mind, we decided to offer our services online.
