It is located to the south of Takeda Shrine, which is the former site of the Takeda Residence, the home of Takeda Shingen, who was said to be the strongest military commander of Japan’s Warring States period (from the late 15th to the late 16th century).
Fūrinkazan (Japanese: 風林火山, “Wind, Forest, Fire, Mountain”), is a popularized version of the battle standard used by the Sengoku period daimyō Takeda Shingen.

Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your gentleness that of the forest.
In raiding and plundering be like fire, be immovable like a mountain.
