The play Chūshingura is based on the real-life tale of 47 samurai who avenged the death of their master. Its themes of bravery and unerring loyalty made it one of the most popular stories in Japan. This translation includes blue-coloured woodblock prints by Japanese artists, printed on Japanese paper.
