Gokoku Shrine in Kofu

Teapot and hearts on a stone lantern

Apparently Gokoju Shrine, located on the Inishie Michi trail near Enko-in, is locally famous for cherry blossoms. However there were none of those when I visited in August. The shrine seemed to be gearing up for some kind of festival, possibly to do with Obon. I read that the shrine is associated with Yamanashi's war dead.
