After visiting Himeji castle and spending a wonderful evening along the Seto Inland Sea (瀬戸内海), I visited the Akōōishi Shrine (赤穂大石神社) and the 47 Ronin Warriors (四十七士). The entrance to the shrine is lined with statues of these Lordless samurai. Inside the shrine is a small museum and along the outside walls of the Haiden (拝殿) and Honden (本殿) of Akōōishi Shrine you can find a pictorial describing this epic tale of the “47 Ronin”.
