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 was the first Western building designated as a national treasure.

Get There and Around

Oura Catholic Church is a five minute walk from "Ouratenshudo-shita" tram station on the line number 5. It stands just next to the entrance of Glover Garden.
