I enjoyed the view of the city from the park. The walk around was nice. I had to see it after seeing the NHK Taiga Drama series on the Sanada Clan.

Worth a visit as this is a very strategic castle. Lots to see and a good museum. Not much English but a very informative flyer.

I am pleased to visit this place. This place is closed to the Ueda Station, but bus service also available. Inside the castle, there is a nice and green park.

21 minutes from Komoro or 45 minutes from Shinano Karuizawa Station towards Nagano Station plus a 10-minute walk from Oshiro Exit (walk left past the bus stops, follow the sign to the left, go down to the end of the road then make a right, and finally follow the street uphill - it's on the left). The last train back to Karuizawa is at 10:16 pm. There are only 1 or 2 trains per hour so time it well.

Even though the cherry blossoms at Komoro just 20 minutes away were in full bloom, the 1000 cherry blossom trees here were already leafing with only some flowers left . It was still very nice lit up at night though, with the trees' reflection in the moat. Most of the food stalls were closing/closed by 8:30 pm on a Saturday night but a few were open. The place is lit up 'til 10 pm during the Cherry Blossom Festival, which is free at night. It took us less than 1 hour to walk through.
