We were there especially for Shingen-ko Festival. The cherry blossoms were really pretty. If you are into Sengoku history or are interested in Japan history, do not miss this place. Worth the visit and will definitely be back.

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

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...More
