Easy to get since a bus runs from the North exit of Kofu station but unless you have some love for Takeda Shingen, the shrine is pretty ordinary.

I was in Kofu for business. But I loved it. Great people, good food, great places where to have a drink amongst the locals. Here you have a taste of the real Japan, and its great history. Takeda Shingen is a hero. He initiated the unification of Japan and had a vision about its future. Somehow, it is under this... More

Shingen Takeda was a great & fearless Busho (samurai). His shrine is very peaceful. The shrine has lots of trees and a beautiful Kagura stage.

This was my second time visiting this Shrine. Not only for the sakura bloom, I went there for Shingen festival (信玄公祭り) as well. The main focus of this festival was of course the samurai parade. Before it started, each samurai team, which was leading by one of 24 Takeda's generals, would go to Takeda Shrine for victory prayer. This simulated... More

My friend suggested that I come out to Kofu to see the annual Samurai Festival. The prospect of seeing more than 1500 fully armed and armoured Samurai parading through the town was more than enough to convince me. And what does this have to do with the shrine? Before the parade, a large number of the Samurai congregate at the... More

One of the best Shinto shrine in the region. It is dedicated to the lord Takeda Shinga; it is well preserved with nice surrounding.

This is a lovely spot in Kofu--beautiful grounds to wander through, wildlife (look for the Black-Crowned Night Herons while you are there), and lovely, ancient-seeming buildings. Well worth a visit; you'll leave feeling rejuvenated by the beauty of the grounds and the sense of history.
