We have three different tour routes for visiting historical sites known to be related to Uesugi Kenshin, one of the greatest samurai commanders in Japan.

The departure and arrival point of these tours can be selected from whichever you wish.

If there is any other site you would like to visit, it can be added to the tour.
A van type taxi (called jumbo taxi) is recommended for a comfortable tour.
