Prum trees

Blooming plum trees in imperial palace garden at site of “Matsu no Roka (松之大廊下) (literally, a corridor of pine trees),
where
Kira Yoshinaka (吉良義央) was stubbed by Asano Naganori (浅野長矩). Asano then committed suicide by disembowelment.
Ako Roshi (赤穂浪士) refers to a group of 47 warriors under the former feudal retainer of Ako,
Ōishi Yoshio (大石良雄),
who on January 30, 1703 broke into the residence of Yoshinaka KIRA, from a Koke (honorable family) who were enemies
of the former lord ASANO, to murder him and get revenge.
