It is also steeped in history, having been the site of a battle between the Takeda Clan and the Later Hojo Clan in the late 1500s. Senbon Matsubara was razed in the fighting, but was later painstakingly rehabilitated over five years by Zoyo Shonin, a famed Buddhist monk. Senbon Matsubara has also been celebrated by several eminent cultural figures, and plaques have been dedicated to them in part of the forest that has been turned into a park.
