The Takeda Shingen statue is a prominent landmark in Kofu as it stands alongside the train station, taxi rank and bus terminus. Thus, most who pass through Kofu see this memorial. Recently, a smart car park has been added to the rear of the statue..

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.
