Yamanashi Prefecture Tourism Information

Yamanashi Prefecture was renamed from Kofu Prefecture to Yamanashi Prefecture by abolition of feudal domains and establishment of prefectures in 1871. The prefectural name is derived from Yamanashi County where the prefectural capital exists. Under the Edo shogunate Kofu clan of Kuninaka Region centering around the Kofu Basin of the Midwest and Tanimura clan of Gunnai Region of the east had ruled. The prefectural land is divided into Yamanashi County, Yashiro County, Kuninaka region of Koma-gun and Gunnai region of Tsuru-gun. Although Takeda Shingen was proud of the forces in the Warring States period, Takeda family was destructed by the Koshu conquest in 1582 in the reign of Takeda Katsuyori. Then, Kai country, the previous name of Yamanashi Prefecture, was ruled by Tokugawa Ieyasu and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and in the era of the Tokugawa shogunate it was ultimately governed as a Shogunate Territory. Yamanashi Prefecture put an emphsis on Takeda Shingen who boasted the mighty forces in the Warring States period, and it plays an important role in the tourism industry. There are many tourism attractions related to Takeda Shingen in the prefecture, such as Takeda Shrine, the family temple of Takeda Shingen “Keitokuzan Erinji”, Shimobe Onsen, Kai Zenko-ji temple, and there are many souvenirs and special products related to Shingen, such as Shingenmochi (Shingen rice cakes) and Shingenmomo (Shingen peach).
