Kofukuji Temple (東明山 興福寺)

A Buddhist temple founded in 1620 by Chinese priest Shinen in prayer for the safe travels of traders sailing to and from Nagasaki. The main temple nave, a nationally designated Important Cultural Property, was rebuilt in 1883 by Chinese artisans and is purely Chinese in architectural style. 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.

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.
