Kai-Zenkoji Temple甲斐 善光寺
This temple is located in Kofu City, Yamanashi Prefecture. It was built in 1558 by Takeda Shingen, who feared that the fires caused by the Battles of Kawanakajima would reach Shinano Zenkoji Temple, as a place to relocate the temple's statues, scriptures, and other properties. The temple's gate and main hall are nationally-designated Important Cultural Properties. The treasure hall built on the temple grounds exhibit some of the temple's countless treasures.

Yamanashi Main Areas
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.
