Transcription

Built in the latter half of the 16th century by the daimyo Sanada Masayuki, Ueda Castle, or in Japanese Ueda-jo, was one of Nagano's major castles as well as a force to recon with and this primarily is thanks to the skill of Sanada Masayuki in war strategies and tactics. Destroyed after the battle of Sekigahara, the castle was then partially rebuilt by the Tokugawa family who appointed another daimyo (ruler) to take care of the area.
