  • Matsushiro is a castle town of Sanada 100,000 stone. Nobuyuki Sanada moved from Ueda in the year of The Sun, and continued to do so. Matsushiro castle was built by Shingen Takeda, and shingen's main team was placed in the Kawanakajima battle with Kenshin Uesugi. Sanada House, Bunbu School, NationalLy Designated Historic Site, Sanada Treasure Museum, Matsushiro Castle Ruins are gathered, and the former Yokota family, important cultural properties, the former Higuchi family, and the Nagakuni-ji Temple and The Sanada family bodhisattva temple are quietly located in the vicinity. There is also a facility related to Sakuma Elephant Mountain, which was born in Matsushiro. It is about a 20-minute drive from Nagano Station, but there are not many tourists visiting, so you can take a leisurely stroll through the city where the spring water from the Alps flows.

  • It has a moat and a bridge to go over. The space inside the protected area is big. We were not able to see inside. I was told this is where they filmed a TV show.  more »

  • It was named Kaizu Castle, and famous for its tactical importance in the 4th Battle of Kawanakajima. But the castle was rebuilt many times, and the current one was rebuilt in 2004. The old castle's defensive structure was rebuilt, although incomplete.
