Travel Guide - Iga-Ueno Castle

InformationInformation

Iga-Ueno Castle is a landmark of Ueno City, the central city of the Iga area. The castle was originally constructed by Tsutsui Sadatsugu in 1585. Then it was enhanced by Todo Takatora in 1608 to prepare for the battle between Tokugawa and Toyotomi (The Siege of Osaka). The stone wall of the castle is approximately 30 meters high and is one of the highest stone walls in Japan.
Visitors can command a panoramic view of Ueno City from the third floor of the castle tower, which was reconstructed in 1935. The castle and its surrounding is also well known as a major cherry blossom viewing spot in the spring.
