一日の画像 - Picture of the Day

Samurai re-enactors recreate the most famous act of revenge and loyalty in Japanese History. It was on this day in 1703 that the 47 Ako Ronin led by Oishi Kuranosuke carried out their revenge on Lord Kira Yoshihisa at his Edo mansion killing 16 of Kira's Retainers and injuring another 22.

We assure you no CGI Dragons, half naked English speaking women, or "Little Buddha" was involved.
