Great historical value

Valuable exhibits in the museum provide essential information on related historical happenings. The monument depicts relevant story as well. Hill top scenery is also excellent.

located on Nishizaka Hill, just behind the station. Musuem has a collection of objects from the early Christian era and explains more about the contact with Europeans and the eventual expulsion and persecution of Japanese Christians. The chapel next door is Gaudi inspired.

I didn't do my research on this museum very well I was under the impression this was the shrine from the movie 41 ronan it isn't. Still I learnt some history about the matryrs , lots of old manuscripts to read, statues and artifacts. I really liked all the stained glass windows they made the place. The tram stops close...

Be sure to visit St Philip Church across from the 26 Martyrs Shrine. Designed by Kenji Imai, it will bring to mind the work of Gaudi in Barcelona. An easy uphill walk from the JR station - you can see the unusual spires of the church on the hill top as you approach.

this hidden gem on the hill shows you some excellent pieces such as statues, paintings etc from the past. A small museum which has it all.
