Oura Catholic Church (Oura Tenshudo) was constructed in the last years of the Edo Period in 1864 for the growing community of foreign merchants, who took up residence in Nagasaki after the end of Japan's era of seclusion.

Oura Catholic Church is considered the oldest standing Christian church in Japan, and is the only Western buidling to be designated as a national treasure.
