Uesugi-ke Byosho [Mausoleum of Uesugi Family]

Uesugi-ke Byosho [Mausoleum of Uesugi Family] うえすぎけびょうしょ
Designated National Cultural Heritage “Yonezawa Domain Lord Uesugi Family Tomb” where generations of Yonezawa domain lords from Uesugi Family are enshrined
Shrines enshrining successive generations of Uesugi Family from the first Kenshin to the eleventh Narisada stand side by side; the air is filled with solemn atmosphere.
 As the Yonezawa Castle was dismantled, the remains of Kenshin Uesugi enshrined in the castle was moved to the mausoleum in 1876.
 The architectural styles of shrine differ by age: The shrines for Kagekatsu to the seventh Munefusa were built in Omoya-zukuri style, and those for the eighth Shigesada (father-in-law to Yozan Uesugi known as a ruler of virtue for reconstructing the domain duties) to the eleventh Narisada in Hogyo-zukuri style.
