From Samurai to Merchants, Ueda's Rich History
The roads around the castle were planned and started in 1583 so the town would complement the castle.
In the Edo Period, the Hokkoku Highway brought prosperity to the inns of Ueda. As a merchant town, lucky stones are worshipped at the local shrine, and shops selling local specialties such as sweet buns, yakisoba, and ramen noodles have become popular.
