Sengakuji’s Ako Gishi Sai 2017

Thursday, Dec 14 | 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The story of the 47 ronin is one of Japan’s most celebrated and famous. While in English it is known simply as “The Story of the 47 Ronin”, in Japanese it is referred to as Ako Jiken (“The Ako Incident”), Ako being domain in Okayama Prefecture that belonged to the feudal lord Asano Takumi no Kami whose perceived unjustly death led to this great tale. 14 December, 1702—the night his loyal followers exacted their revenge—has been celebrated at Sengakuji every year since 1903 with a parade from around 11am to commemorate the fallen samurai (Ako Gishi).
