Small well that still has water and a bucket. It represents the water works in old times Ako. there is also a clock next to it.

I didn't expect much, but we went to see this famous well as part of our visit to Ako. My 4-year-old son was fascinated with how it worked, and played with the pulley system for a long time, and even went back a few hours later. Ours was not the only child intrigued by the well. The good news is that the story is told in English as well as Japanese from a small microphone, so it is possible to learn about the history when you visit. Next to the well is a clock which plays music, opens to reveal scenes, and tells a story once an hour. Unfortunately the story is not in English, so would be hard to understand for a person who does not know the story of the 47 Ronin. However, the moving parts were again a source of wonder and delight for all the kids around. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in Ako...and all the better because it is free!

The Well represents a monument to the waterworks which was built in Ako. It also is a clock which chimes on the hour and shows a scene of the 47 ronin. There is a sign in english which recounts the story quickly
