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.

初めて訪問しました。 全体が城跡公園となっていて本丸は残されていませんが、櫓門と三基の櫓は綺麗に残されたお城でした。 公営の駐車場が徒歩５分位のところにあって、平日一時間以内は無料と良心的でした。 東虎口櫓門の右手の石垣には、真田石と言う大きな石が一個あってその大きさには驚きでした。 櫓門を潜ると、真田神社があってお参りも済ませました。 神社の鳥居の横には、櫓門と櫓の撮影ベストスポットと書かれてあ... more »I visited for the first time. The whole was a castle ruins park, and the main circle was not left, but the tower gate and three towers were the castles left beautifully. The public parking lot was about a 5-minute walk away, and it was free and conscientious within an hour of the weekday. There was one big stone called Manada stone in the stone wall of the right hand of the East Toraguchi tower gate, and it was surprised at the size. When we went under the tower gate, there was sanada shrine, and we finished the visit. Next to the torii of the shrine, there was a place written as the best spot to shoot the tower gate and tower, and it was certainly a good place to take a picture. We went for a short stroll in the park and went to the public parking lot. It was affordable sightseeing to be able to go around in free time.
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.
