47 Ronin

Let's get started!

Do you know what today is? It is the day of the 47 Ronin. There is a big festival held in Sengakuji on December 14th every year.  Sengakuji is the site of the graves of the 47 Ronin.  When I visited, my clothes became covered with the smell of incense as there was incense burning at each of the 47 graves. During the festival, a bunch of people dressed up as Samurai and marched down the street to re-enact the scenes from long ago.  I remember thinking how cool they looked as they came up the road. In the front of the procession, one of the samurai was carrying something tied to the end of a long pole.  It looked like a lunchbox to me, but it was actually the head of their enemy.

There is also a really cool Hollywood movie about the 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves.

If you have time today, you should definitely check out the festival at Sengakuji!

Have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day!
