How to get to Ueda
It is easier than eating sushi. You can arrive within 90 minutes from Tokyo station. Please get off at Ueda station on "Asama Super Express" of "Hokuriku Shinkansen". There are lots of accommodation facilities such as hotels and inns. However, since it is the holiday in Japan during the event period, please make a reservation early. The main venue of the event is the square in front of Ueda station. Easy, right?
