Ueno castle is located in Iga city. We bought a package deal with Ninja Museum of Igaryu, Ueno castle and Danjiri museum. My students dressed up like Ninja and strolled around the town for 3 hours. The Ninja show was great! It is only less...More

This castle is a little out of the way for most people, and I've only gone out to the area on business. That said, I would argue that despite it's smaller size, it feels much more impressive than Osaka Castle simply because it isn't surrounded...More

I would visit it if I was visiting the Iga-Ueno Ninja Museum but not go out of my way to visit the castle only when there are many more castles that are easier to get to like Osaka Castle or Himeji Castle. They were setting...More

Throughout my Japan trip, I stayed in Osaka so it was challenging going to Iga City with roughly 3-hrs travel time not to mention the 'waiting time'. Since this is Mie Prefecture, I can't tell for sure but during my trip there weren't many train...More

Ueno Castle is a very manageable size that one can easily cover in conjunction with a visit to the ninja museum on the same hill within the same park. It contains period art and various artifacts.

The Castle is cool, the grounds are beautiful and the Ninja show was great!! I even got to throw some real ninja stars at targets, and got my picture taken with performers from the show! Just an amazing time! Childhood dream come true!!

A very peaceful place to visit compared to the crowds in the better-known castles. The interior (admission charge) is mostly a museum but, unfortunately, almost everything is exclusively written in Japanese. The castle is very picturesque and offers fine views of the town of Ueno-shi...More

A seemingly 'inconspicuous' castle but filled with wonderful artifacts of the history of the town. Worth a visit for the price of the ticket (500 yen) and the top level (there's only 2 levels) offers a panoramic view of town. Will definitely go again!
