Sanko Shrine and Warrior, Sanada Yukimura

Each year, NHK broadcasts one hour drama about historically famous person.
This year, Sanada Nobushige, known as Sanada Yukimura is the main character.
The name of the drama is “Sanada-maru”; it’s something like “Fort Sanada”



The stronghold was around Sanko Shrine, near JR and Subway "Tamatsukuri" Stations.

Sanada Yukimura was on Toyotomi side.
Toyotomi completely lost in the Osaka Summer War in 1615. Tokugawa won and Tokogawa Family’s era continued until 1868.
He is admired as a hero.

Because of the drama, many people from all over Japan are visiting this shrine.
