The tale of the 47 Ronin

In 1701 lord Asano of Ako was selected by the shogun to prepare a lavish welcome ceremony for another arriving Daimyo. Needing instruction on this delicate matter, Asano hired lord Kira to teach him about court pageantry. After the training was finished lord Kira insulted Asano, believing that he had been underpaid for his services. Asano, feeling deeply offended, attacked Kira with his sword, wounding his head and shoulder severely. The two were broken apart and brought before the Shogun. Although Asano had acted in true Samurai spirit, he had committed a very grave crime drawing his sword in the Shogun's palace punishable by death. That same afternoon he was ordered to perform seppuku.

A group of 47 of lord Asano's Samurai vowed revenge. Now masterless, they devoted their lives to the avengement of lord Asano's death. For years they waited for their opportunity to strike. Finally, on 14 December 1702, the 47 ronin struck. After beheading Kira and placing his head on their master's grave, turned themselves over to the Shogun. This solemn and highly symbolic act won the hearts of the masses. There was an outburst of public sympathy and admiration for the 47 ronin.

For a few months the Shogun pondered the question of their fate. Finally it was decided that although they had acted in the time-honored tradition of the Samurai, they had also broken the new laws of the Tokugawa. On this charge they were ordered to commit Seppuku. Upon their death the story of the 47 ronin achieved a level of folklore immortality that has been matched by few others in Japan's history.
