Samurai Residences武家屋敷

Other Historic Site/Building

These residences where built on the west side of Shimabara Castle when Matsukura Shigemasa built the fortress. Because they mainly housed foot soldiers trained in the use of matchlock rifles, the area is also known as “Matchlock Rifle Town.” A spring used for daily needs by the street said to have once been lined with 700 residences still flows clean today, creating an elegant scene.

          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.
