Went to this shrine and found it is so peaceful. We pay respect to the 47 warriors. The temple looks great and there is a small museum too. It's just 2 mins walk from the train station.

This is a moving temple. Here you can quietly pay respects to the 47 Ronin who avenged their master. You can just quietly sit and ponder life or burn incense for each grave
