Nirasaki City has been known for its many ruins that were built in the primitive and ancient times. In the Edo period, it prospered as a Shukuba (post station) on the Koshu-Kaido. This is a city full of history and nature, surrounded by famous Japanese peaks such as the Southern Alps, Yatsugatake, Chigadake, and Mt. Fuji. Especially in the coming season, beautiful scenery will be enhanced by these peaks and cherry blossoms.

Nirasaki City is also known as a place associated with the Kai Takeda clan, and there is a bronze statue of Nobuyoshi Takeda, the first generation of the Kai Takeda clan, in front of the city hall.
There are many buildings and places associated with the Kai Takeda clan in the city, including Takeda Hachimangu Shrine, where Nobuyoshi Takeda, the first generation of the clan, had a Genpuku ceremony (a ceremony of attaining manhood).
