真田邸・新御殿 [松代] Sanada-tei / Shingoten (Matsushiro)

The Palace of the Sanada was built in 1864 by Sanada Yukinori, 9th Lord of Matsushiro Domain. This is how Daimyō lived during the Edo Period. Known today as Sanada-tei, the Sanada Residence was originally simply referred to as Shingoten (New Palace), probably due to it serving as a replacement for the Honmaru Go'ten (Main Bailey Palace) in Matsushiro Castle, which was abandoned due to water drainage problems.
