April 12th is Takeda Shingen's memorial day. I happened to visit the shrine on that day and witnessed Kagura dances on the stage, and kimono-clad ladies dancing on the lawn. The cherry blossoms were out in force, and made for a lovely sight when balanced with the darker shades of the cedar / pine trees that surround the shrine. Well... More

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.

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
