Not many people will visit this temple at a time, and so if you're as lucky as we were, you'll probably be the VERY few visitors there. As such you have the whole temple to yourselves, so do take the time to appreciate the beautiful...More

The temple was very peaceful and quiet with typically Japanese temple and garden. As other visitors, I came to pay respect to the 47 samurai and understand more about Japan history. It was a very nice temple and worth a short visit.

One of the best temples I've ever visited. I was the only visitor at the time. So I had the luxury of silence and peace during my visit. It was surreal to see the lives of all 47 samurais immortalised in the most humble fashion....More

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

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.

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
