    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Tamazonomachi 3-77
    A Buddhist temple built by the priest Tetsushin Dohan in 1677. Together with the Kofukuji Temple, Fukusai-ji Temple, and the Sofuku-ji Temple (the Three Temples of Good Fortune), the Shofukuji Temple is counted as one of the Four Nagasaki Temples of Good Fortune. Surrounded by natural forest, the temple charms visitors with its moody atmosphere that seems reminiscent of a time long past.

    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Chikugomachi 2-56
    A venerable Buddhist temple founded by a Tang dynasty Chinese priest and one of the Four Nagasaki Temples of Good Fortune. Prior to World War II, it was designated a Special Protection Building (equivalent to today’s National Treasure designation), but the original building was lost due to the atomic bombing. Thereafter, the temple’s great statue of Kannon was built in prayer for the happiness in the next life of those who died from the bombing as well as in the war. The Sakura-machi stop on the tramway is the closes stop to the temple. A 10-minute walk from JR Nagasaki Station.

    Fukusaiji Temple in Nagasaki was founded in 1628, originally as a zen temple. During the dropping of the atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945, the temple was completely destroyed...

    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Kajiyamachi 7-5
    The oldest Chinese-style Buddhist temple in Japan. The temple was built in 1629 by Chozen, priest from Fuzhou, China. The Dai’ippo-mon gate and Daio Ho-den hall are designated National Treasures. Many other buildings on the temple’s grounds are also protected as Important Cultural Properties. The Buddhist statues and ritual implements in the temple hall were all created by Chinese craftsman. One of the Four Nagasaki Temples of Good Fortune.

    This is not a Japanese Temple but is Chinese and dates back to the Ming Dynasty and 1629. This temple came about because of Chinese traders arriving into Japan. Some of the later buildings such as...

    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Teramachi 4-32
    A Buddhist temple founded in 1620 by Chinese priest Shinen in prayer for the safe travels of traders sailing to and from Nagasaki.

The temple’s charms, made from water strainers, are said to bring the fulfillment of love as well as traffic safety. An eight-minute walk from the Kokaidomae stop on the tramway.

    The origins of this temple date back to 1620 when Chinese merchants arrived in Nagasaki and needed a shrine to pray for safety. The original Main Hall was built in 1632 but was destroyed by fire and...

    Nagasaki Nagasaki-shi Chikugomachi 2-10

    個人的ですけど、何とも、長崎らしいエリアに「本蓮寺」があると思いました。 朝、散策がてら歩いていた時に見つけた「本蓮寺」です。周辺は小高い丘になっており、お墓がたくさん並んでいます。また、道は、小道、それも坂道だらけです。歩きながら、まさに長崎らしいなって思いました。ちなみに、子猫が墓の周りに数匹いたのも覚えています。「本蓮寺」よりも、そのことのほうが印象に残りました。 なお、お寺の人は朝早い時間...

    Nagasaki Pref. Nagasakishi Teramachi 1-1

    숭복사를 중심으로 펼쳐진 데라마치의 여러 절 중 하나인 호태사. 중국풍이 강한 숭복사와 다르게 일본풍 사찰 그 자체입니다. 시간이 된다면 꼭 함께 보는 걸 추천.

Nagasaki Main Areas

around-area-map

This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
