Located at the foot of the mountains of Koshu, Yamanashi, the temple where the famous samurai warlord Takeda Shingen rests. I’m not a Japanese history buff or know it all so that’s as much as I know about the place.
I visited it during the beginning of summer but I’d reckon that it is much better looking in the spring during cherry blossom season or fall when the leaves are turning color. It was my first time ever visiting the temple but I’m pretty glad I visited.
I love visiting temples and shrines in Japan because the architecture is really appealing to me. Erinji is especially nice because it is taken well care of and has a really nice garden surrounding it. I’d say this is one of the better places to visit in the Yamamashi basin.
