Yonezawa is a castle town in Yamagata Prefecture (Northern Honshu) that was once home to the Uesugi clan (14th-17th Centuries). The original castle buildings have been long destroyed, but Ueshugi Jinja Shrine, which was built at the center of the site, remains. The shrine is dedicated to the powerful warrior, Uesugi Kenshin, and features a treasure house filled with original artifacts, which enhance the town’s Samurai-era ambiance. Yonezawa is also famous for traditional crafts and local culinary delicacies. Especially, Yonezawa Beef, which is considered among the highest quality beef in Japan, akin with Kobe Beef and Matsuzaka Beef. The area is also rich in therapeutic onsen - natural hot springs -- and historic sake breweries.
