Site of the Martyrdom of the 26 Saints of Japan (Oura Cathedral) (日本二十六聖殉教者天主堂(大浦天主堂))

Church

Japan’s oldest extant Christian structure, built in 1864. The church was built in dedication of 26 Japanese Christians who were executed in 1597 and faces Nishizaka, the area in Nagasaki where they were martyred. The location is also famous as the place where Hidden Christians professed their faith in 1865 while the religion was still banned in Japan. The church was designated a National Treasure in 1953. A five-minute walk from the O-Uratenshudoshita stop on the tramway.

          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.
