    This park is approximately 25 minutes by bus from Oita Station, right near the Junkyo-koen Mae stop. Otomo Sorin was Bungo Province's feudal lord during the Warring States Period. He was a Christian, so missionary work flourished under him and eventually over 30,000 people converted. A ban on Christianity was put in place after his death. It was fiercely repressed, and many Christians were put to death throughout the land, including about 200 that were executed when Bungo Province collapsed in the Edo Period (1603-1868). The park with its monuments pays witness to this horrible chapter in history and memorializes the victims.

Oita Areas

around-area-map

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
