“Cool statue outside the train station”

Takeda Shingen Statue
Reviewed 4 August 2016

First of all, this is a duplicate listing. How is the same statue the #2 thing to do in Kofu, but his other listing ("Statue of Takeda Shingen") the #27 thing to do in Kofu.
Anyway, for a duplicate listing, here is a duplicate review:

If you're taking the train or the bus, you may as well check him out. He stands right next to the bus stop to go to Shosenkyo Gorge. He lived in Kofu Castle (Maizuru Castle) at one point. While you're there, hop on the Tully's Coffee or Family Mart wifi and read his page on Wikipedia. If you've never studied Japanese history, it's probably meaningless to you (it was to me). To summarize: he was a pretty prestigious warlord during Feudal Japan. He ordered the damming of the Fuji River.

There's not much to say. Takeda Shingen statue sitting next to Kōfu station South exit. Worth to take a look if you happen to be near the Station, it takes only a minute to visit it.
