Built in the 16th century and attacked twice, these famous remains of Ueda Castle is now a famous park with a thousand cherry trees that bloom in April.

The Ueda City Museum is on your right as you enter the park. You can see various historical artifacts such as the lord's armor, articles from the silkworm industry, and examples of the local traditional folk culture.
