Takeda-jinja Shrine武田神社

Shrine

Takeda Shingen, a pre-eminent daimyo from the Sengoku (warring states) period, is enshrined here as a deity. It is said that for those praying at this shrine, not only luck in competitive games can be attained, but you can also be rewarded with a stronger mind to better oneself. In addition, through its efforts to attain prosperity in agriculture, commerce, and industry, the enshrined deity draws many worshipers as the god of industry and economy. The sanctuary within the grounds of the shrine houses a host of treasures such as a Kamakura period sword, Yoshioka-ichimonji, designated a national important cultural property. The Tsutsujigasaki-yakata Ruins, a national historic monument of Japan, is the place where three generations of the Takeda family, Nobutora, Shingen, and Katsuyori, actually lived. Festivals are held throughout the year and attract many, many people.

Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan's most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country's highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
