In 955, Priest Kuya donated his Buddha statue and built Entakuji temple.
Every February 13 to 14, their principal image of the temple will be opened for public and there is a large festival held. The image has the power to protect the people from the disaster and listen to the wish of people. It is designated as the important cultural assets of Yamanashi. About 100,000 people join this festival every year.
About 100 food stands and gift shops will open on the leading street.
