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.
