Uesugi Shrine in Matsugasaki Park is on the site of Yonezawa Castle, hence the moats and stone walls. Home of the Uesugi clan, the castle was destroyed in 1873 by the order of the Meiji government. Uesugi Shrine enshrining Uesugi Kenshin, was built in its place. The park is noted for cherry blossoms in April. The shrine is a short bus ride (or bicycle ride) from Yonezawa Station.
