Sengakuji is a Buddhist temple located in the Takanawa neighborhood of Minato-ku, about 10 minutes from Shinagawa Station, Tokyo, Japan.

The graves of Shogun Asano Takumi no Kami Naganori and the forty-seven loyal Ronin are here.

Amazing story of honour, loyalty and Japanese culture.

Very, very few Japanese actually know of the temple, story or history.

Beautiful place when the sakuras bloom.

Foreigner in Tokyo - Did you hear the 5AM bell from Sengakuji this morning?
Japanese friend - What's a Sengakuji?
