Oura Church




This was the site of the discovery of the hidden Christians. The architecture, which is a mix of Western and Japanese styles, is also worth seeing.

This national treasure is the oldest Gothic-style church in Japan. During a time when Christianity was banned in Japan and thought to have been eradicated, a group of hidden Christians secretly preserved their religion for over 250 years here.
