Whether you were touched by the movie, 47 Ronin, or you are simply interested in the Japanese feudal period, this is a must see. I can't vouch for the authenticity of the movie but I can vouch for this moving tribute to these heroic samurai....More

This temple holds the remains of the 47 Ronin and their load. The museum tells their story in both Japanese and English and there is a way to honor those brave warriors. Read the story before you go or watch one of the several movices...More

I've been here for years, ever since I read a novel and saw The 47 Ronin Story. The explanations available are very informative, especially if already read the novel The 47 Ronin Story.

I cannot get enough of the shrines and temples of Japan. They feel so incredibly serene and holy regardless of the religious inclination of the visitor. Take time to be, to reflect, and to make wishes for things/people that need attention. I was settled and...More

This is a small and relatively unremarkable temple. However, we visited this temple, not for the temple itself, but to pay homage to the famous 47 Ronin, great cultural heroes who are buried in the adjacent graveyard. If you are familiar with the legendary story...More

A bright red temple with some steps required to enter and a huge outdoor stall area along the way. Of course lots of burning incense!

If you visit only one historical shrine in Tokyo make this your choice, small but poignant with a real feel of history

Although very popular, this is one of the most visited Temples. We went on a weekday, mid afternoon and the place was packed with tourists. There are many other less congested temples/shrines to visit in Tokyo

We visited Sengaku-ji Temple on a recent visit to Tokyo. It is a 2-3 minutes walk from the Sengaku Station on the Toei Asakusa and Keikyu Main Lines. We didn't visit the temple itself, but the two small museums and the small graveyard next to...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa

Can you hire a tour guide I notice for obvious reasons most of the things are in Japanese so it would be good to have someone convert to English so I could better understand. If yes how much would a guide cost.

I've never seen any guides or docents but there is an English pamphlet that is very inexpensive. I highly recommend that you pay to go into the museum, there is a very good film in English which explains the story of the 47... More

Hello! Is there a fee to visit the Temple? Are tickets sold in advance or anything? I'd hate to go only to find I can't get in due to it being "sold out" or something..
