Finally I reached at Ueda castle at Ueda city in Nagano prefecture. This castle was constructed by brave samurai captain Masayuki Sanada (1547-1611) in 1583. His son Yukimura and his 10 samurais’ story was very popular in Japan. These 10 lionhearted samurai may be fiction, but they became heroes in the novel, movie, manga and anime.
