Ventforet Kofu (ヴァンフォーレ甲府 Vanfōre Kōfu) is a Japanese football (soccer) club from Kofu. The team competes in the J. League Division 1. Its home ground is the Kose Sports Stadium.
The word "Ventforet" is a compound formed from two French root words: "vent" (wind) and "forêt" (forest). The name alludes to the famous phrase Fū-rin-ka-zan (風林火山）that Shingen Takeda, a prominent Kofu-based daimyo in the Sengoku period, emblazoned on his war banners. The phrase contains four similies: as swift as the wind; as silent as a forest; as fierce as fire; as immovable as a mountain.
