Nestled at the start of Japan's "Romantic Road," the city of Ueda established itself in the 16th century as a prominent castle town. Flourishing in the early 20th century as a major player in the country's silk industry, today Ueda draws visitors with national monuments set within a well-preserved landscape. Many of Ueda's attractions surround the remains of the 16th-century castle in the central district, allowing you to tour museums, galleries, and temples with one day of relaxed walking. Set against a backdrop of rugged mountain scenery, the southeast of the city contains several ancient onsens, popular with many after a long hike or ski in the winter season (December to February). Ueda is in Nagano Prefecture. Plan your trip to Ueda and other Japan destinations using our handy Japan journey planning tool .
