Ueda Castle is a flatland style Japanese Castle is in Ueda in Nagano Prefecture. Ueda Castle was constructed by the well known samurai leader, Sanada Masayuki, in 1583. Shortly after the completion of Ueda Castle it was attacked by the forces of Tokugawa Ieyasu it was later known as The Battle of Kami River. The Sanada Clan ambushed the Tokugawa troops as they approached Ueda Castle leading to a successful defence of the castle. In 1600 the Sanada Clan successfully defended Ueda Castle from Tokugawa's forces. Today the original yugura (turret) in the West, North and South still remain.
