Fodor's Review

This church survived the bomb that leveled much of the city. It was constructed in 1865 to commemorate the death of 26 Christians crucified in 1597, victims of Toyotomi's gruesome message of religious intolerance. It's the oldest Gothic-style building in Japan. Below the entrance to Glover Garden, the church is a five-minute walk from the Oura Tenshu-do-shita streetcar stop.
