Beautiful church with a sad history where the priests were killed. Postcards and gift items were available for sale inside the church. It's about 20 min walk from the museum. Worth the visit.

The church is not far from the peace park and hypocentre of the 1945 bombing. It was once the biggest Catholic Church in the East. The inside is not that grand and there is a small museum near the church with some of the remains...More
Take a few minutes to visit the Cathedral that replaced the one that was destroyed by the atomic bomb. There is a good explanation in English of its founding, and the ruins of the statues outside are interesting.
You can't access any of the cathedral other than from right at the back. Which means the beauty of the stained glass (one of my favourite parts) is missed. The building inside and out isn't very interesting. It's close by to the atomic bomb museum...More
I wanted to see Christian Japanese customs but was too late. Still the cathedral is very beautiful even from the outside. It stands tall and stoic midst the loudy urban jungle. We got some great pictures as it was sunset time when I went.
The cathedral is a typical church with stained glass windows. The draw is that it was at the center of the atomic bombing, completely destroyed & rebuilt. There are some artifacts from the original church in a small building beside the church
Im a regular mass goer during sundays. I experienced the mass here at 6:00 am in nihonggo. It was a good experience. They dont kneel btw. Great view also. a must place to visit if youre in nagasaki
