47 Ronin Shrine Aug 14, 2014
I had never heard of the 47 Ronin until I watched the 2013 Keanu Reeves film. Even though the film has fantasy elements it still tells the true story of the 47 Ronin and of the honor of the 47 Ronin, so I was glad to know the story before I visited the shrine.

The shrine itself is well maintained and respectful. It also has a small museum on the site where the artifacts and documents of the 47 ronin are housed.

Even though the shrine/gravesite is small there is definitely something special about the place, especially when you know the story.

Yeah its not the greatest film in the world but its alright, it exaggerates the story but without the film I probably wouldn't have known the story, so :)

I've never heard of 47 ronin until you mentioned (even so i didn't pay much attention). then i had a chat with TB Airportman who said the last show he watched was 47 ronin. then it suddenly clicked, and now I know... will get the dvd... never liked keanu reeves, but seems like an interesting story
