Ueda Castle Remains
Ueda Castle was originally built in 1583 by Sanada Masayuki during the Warring States period. The castle is historically significant in that it successfully defended against attacks by the Tokugawa army despite being severely outnumbered twice. A park has been developed around the castle remains, and in springtime it comes alive as one of Nagano’s top cherry blossom viewing destinations. In 2016, NHK aired the period drama “Sanada Maru” which features Ueda Castle and tells the story of the Sanada clan.
