Google Chushingura and you'll soon find the story, though it nearly always 
places the end of the story in the graveyard of the Sengakuji shrine in 
Shinagawa; it hardly ever mentions that the really exciting events ended in Ryogoku. 
This year some local history group has set up little notice boards all around 
the place, each telling the story of that particular place, plus copy of old 
picture.

That would be pretty interesting but I think most know that the meaty end of 
the action took place up in Ryogoku as opposed to down in Shinagawa as the 
whole journey down to Shinagawa was something of a feature of the tale.

Wonder if the groups you menion tells their readers that the number 47 is a 
tad fictional? 

Also - to add- those 20k tickets are still on offer 4/5 days after the 
weekend - cash only.
