We were in the area so we were definitely going to visit. Well preserved temple and shrine. The history of it is very interesting. Excellent dedication to those men who will never be forgotten.

This was like a huge shopping area. many hundreds of people, tourists and regulars. Very crowded. Did browse the shops along the way to the temple. I can now say I was there.

Interesting small historical gravesite/shrine. Prior to visiting read up on the 47 Ronin and understand the players in the story. This temple is free and the two "museums" are fairly priced. Both aren't particularly amazing but it is worth it to contribute to the maintenance...More
