Head up to Ueda Castle, a historic fort known for its impressively designed defenses.
Built in the second half of the 16th century as the home of the Sanada clan, the castle twice repelled attacks from the Tokugawa clan before the century was out. The second time around, only 2,500 warriors reportedly defended the stronghold against a force of 38,000. Admire the citadel's clever architectural design, with its deep moat and imposing stone base. While not much of the castle still stands, the site's history and surrounding scenery makes it well worth the visit.

Ueda Castle Reviews
行った日は水曜日。よく調べずに行きましたので、櫓に上れず。博物館もお休み。 せっかく来たのに、あら残念！ 櫓の写真撮って、お堀一周して、休憩して。 敷地内に真田神社があります。 駐車場は、北の駐車場利用が良いですよ。 私たちは南側の駐車場を利用したので、西櫓脇の階段を登りました。 これが、かなりシンドイ。 でも、こっちからは、石垣は堪能出来ます。 more »The day i went was Wednesday. I went without looking into it, so I couldn't go up to the tower. The museum is also closed. I'm sorry to come here! Take a picture of the tower, go around the moat, and take a rest. There is Manada Shrine on site. Parking is good in the north. We used the parking lot on the south side, so we climbed the stairs beside the west tower. This is pretty thin. But from here, you can enjoy the stone wall.
上田城是知名的真田幸村所屬之城，被日本列為百城之一，雖還有部份待重建，主要城門也是值得一看，裡面還有真田神社！ more »Uewada City is well-known as the city of Yukio Inada, listed as one of the hundred cities in Japan, there are still some to be rebuilt, the main city is also worth a look, there is also the Shinta Shrine!
You can observe the fresh state of the tower that shoots guns and arrows, and the exhibits are abundant and do not get tired. If you put together the annex, you can follow the era from the sengoku period of Ueda to the pre-war era, you can enjoy very much. By the way, the common ticket is 500 yen for adults and 150 yen for elementary and junior high school students, so i think elementary and junior high school students who were eager to watch Satadamaru can enjoy a lot of money.
I went out in the morning and was satisfied to go around the moat while watching cherry blossoms slowly! This is the best time. It's fun to have a lot of openings and atmosphere. The garbage was supposed to be taken home by oneself, and the inside of the castle was beautiful.
