Nagasaki City, Nagasaki
22 March 2010

  Nagasaki City (’·èŽs) is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. Nagasaki was founded by the Portuguese in the 16th century.  It was formerly part of Nishisonogi District (¼”Þ‹n”¼“‡).  It was a center of Portuguese and European influence in the 16th through 19th centuries.  Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.  During World War II, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki made Nagasaki the second and, to date, last city in the world to be subject to nuclear attack: This is a sincerest wish from Japanese people to the world: "No More Hiroshima, No More Nagasaki!"  (For further information of the atomic bombings, go to the Hiroshima City page.)
  Founded by the Portuguese in the second half of the 16th century, Nagasaki was originally secluded by harbours.  It enjoyed little historical significance until contact with European explorers in 1542, when a Portuguese ship landed nearby, somewhere in Kagoshima prefecture.  The Navarrese Jesuit missionary St. Francis Xavier arrived in another part of the territory in 1549, but left for China in 1551 and died soon afterwards.  His followers who remained behind converted a number of daimyo (‘å–¼; feudal lords).
   The little harbor village quickly grew into a diverse port city, and Portuguese products imported through Nagasaki (such as tobacco, bread, textiles and a Portuguese sponge-cake called castellas) were assimilated into popular Japanese culture.  "Tempura," while not Portuguese in origin, takes its name from the Portuguese word, 'Tempero' (noun tempero, meaning a spicy condiment or peppery seasoning, or from the verb temperar, meaning "to season" has not been substantiated), another example of the enduring effects of this cultural exchange.  The Portuguese also brought with them many goods from China.
  Due to the instability during the Sengoku Period (Warlike Ages between 15th - 16th c.), Sumitada Omura (‘呺ƒ’‰) and Jesuit leader Alexandro Valignano conceived a plan to pass administrative control over to the Society of Jesus rather than see the Catholic city taken over by a non-Catholic daimyo.  Thus, for a brief period after 1580, the city of Nagasaki was a Jesuit colony, under their administrative and military control. It became a refuge for Christians escaping maltreatment in other regions of Japan.  In 1587, however, Hideyoshi Toyotomi (–LbG‹g)'s campaign to unify the country arrived in Kyushu.  Concerned with the large Christian influence in southern Japan, as well as the active and what was perceived as the arrogant role the Jesuits were playing in the Japanese political arena, Hideyoshi ordered the expulsion of all missionaries, and placed the city under his direct control.  However, the expulsion order went largely unenforced, and the fact remained that most of Nagasaki's population remained openly practicing Catholics.  In 1596, the Spanish ship San Felipe was wrecked off the coast of Shikoku (ƒTƒ“ƒtƒFƒŠƒy†Ž–Œ), and Hideyoshi learned from its pilot that the Spanish Franciscans were the vanguard of an Iberian invasion of Japan.  In response, Hideyoshi ordered the crucifixions of twenty-six Catholics in Nagasaki on February 5 of that year (“ú–{26¹l}‹³ŽÒ; the "Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan").  Portuguese traders were not ostracized, however, and so the city continued to thrive.  
   In 1602, Augustinian missionaries also arrived in Japan, and when Ieyasu Tokugawa (“¿ì‰ÆN) took power in 1603, Catholicism was still tolerated.  Many Catholic daimyo had been critical allies at the Battle of Sekigahara (ŠÖƒ–Œ´‚̐킢, 1600), and the Tokugawa position was not strong enough to move against them.  Once Osaka Castle had been taken and Toyotomi Hideyoshi's offspring was killed, though, the Tokugawa dominance was assured.  In addition, the Dutch and English presence allowed trade without religious strings attached.  Thus, in 1614, Catholicism was officially banned and all missionaries ordered to leave. Most Catholic daimyo apostatized, and forced their subjects to do so, although a few would not renounce the religion and left the country for Macau, Luzon and Japantowns in Southeast Asia.  A brutal campaign of persecution followed, with thousands of converts across Kyushu and other parts of Japan killed, tortured, or forced to renounce their religion. Catholicism's last gasp as an open religion, and the last major military action in Japan until the Meiji Restoration, was the Shimabara Rebellion (“‡Œ´‚Ì—) of 1637. While there is no evidence that Europeans directly incited the rebellion, Shimabara Domain had been a Christian han for several decades, and the rebels adopted many Portuguese motifs and Christian icons. Consequently, in Tokugawa society the word "Shimabara" solidified the connection between Christianity and disloyalty, constantly used again and again in Tokugawa propaganda.  The Shimabara Rebellion also convinced many policy-makers that foreign influences were more trouble than they were worth, leading to the national isolation policy.  The Portuguese, who had been previously living on a specially-constructed island-prison in Nagasaki harbor called Dejima (o“‡), were expelled from the archipelago altogether, and the Dutch were moved from their base at Hirado (•½ŒË) into the trading island.  In 1720 the ban on Dutch books was lifted, causing hundreds of scholars to flood into Nagasaki to study European science and art. Consequently, Nagasaki became a major center of Rangaku (—–Šw), or "Dutch Learning."  During the Edo Period, the Tokugawa Shogunate Government governed the city, appointing a hatamoto, the Nagasaki-bugyo (’·è•òs), as its chief administrator.  Consensus among historians was once that Nagasaki was Japan's only window on the world during its time as a closed country in the Tokugawa era.  However, nowadays it is generally accepted that this was not the case, since Japan interacted and traded with the Ryukyu Kingdom, Korea and Russia through Satsuma, Tsushima and Matsumae respectively.  Nevertheless, Nagasaki was depicted in contemporary art and literature as a cosmopolitan port brimming with exotic curiosities from the Western World.  
  In 1808, during the Napoleonic Wars the British Royal Navy frigate HMS Phaeton entered Nagasaki Harbor in search of Dutch trading ships.  The local magistrate was unable to resist the British demand for food, fuel, and water, later committing seppuku as a result.  Laws were passed in the wake of this incident strengthening coastal defenses, threatening death to intruding foreigners, and prompting the training of English and Russian translators. The Tojin-yashiki (“‚l‰®•~) or Chinese Factory in Nagasaki was also an important conduit for Chinese goods and information for the Japanese market. Various colorful Chinese merchants and artists sailed between the Chinese mainland and Nagasaki. Some actually combined the roles of merchant and artist such as 18th century Yi Hai (ˆÉŠC).  It is believed that as much as one-third of the population of Nagasaki at this time may have been Chinese.  
   With the Meiji Restoration, Japan opened its doors once again to foreign trade and diplomatic relations. Nagasaki became a free port in 1859 and modernization began in earnest in 1868.  Nagasaki was officially proclaimed a city on April 1, 1889.  With Christianity legalized and the Kakure Kirishitan (Hidden Christian) coming out of hiding, Nagasaki regained its earlier role as a center for Roman Catholicism in Japan.  During the Meiji Period, Nagasaki became a center of heavy industry. Its main industry was ship-building, with the dockyards under control of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries becoming one of the prime contractors for the Imperial Japanese Navy, and with Nagasaki harbor used as an anchorage under the control of nearby Sasebo Naval District.   These connections with the military made Nagasaki a major target for bombing by the Allies in World War II.
   On August 9, 1945, Nagasaki was the target of the world's second atomic bomb attack (and second plutonium bomb; the first was tested in New Mexico, USA) at 11:02 a.m., when the north of the city was destroyed and an estimated 40,000 people were killed by the bomb nicknamed "Fat Man."   According to statistics found within Nagasaki Peace Park, the death toll from the atomic bombing totaled 73,884, as well as another 74,909 injured, and another several hundred thousand diseased and dying due to fallout and other illness caused by radiation.
   The city was rebuilt after the war, albeit dramatically changed.   New temples were built, as well as new churches due to an increase in the presence of Christianity.   Nagasaki is the seat of a Roman Catholic Archdiocese led by Archbishop Joseph Mitsuaki Takami.   Some of the rubble was left as a memorial, such as a one-legged torii gate and an arch near ground zero. New structures were also raised as memorials, such as the Atomic Bomb Museum. Nagasaki remains first and foremost a port city, supporting a rich shipping industry and setting a strong example of perseverance and peace. On January 4, 2005 the towns of Iojima (ˆÉ‰¤“‡’¬), Koyagi (Ä’¬), Nomozaki (–ì•êè’¬), Sanwa (ŽO˜a’¬), Sotome (ŠOŠC’¬) and Takashima (‚“‡’¬), all from Nishisonogi District (¼”Þ‹n”¼“‡), were merged into Nagasaki.  (Referred to the site of "Wikipedia.")

"Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan"
     Nishizaka Park(¼âŒö‰€) near JR Nagasaki Station is the site of martyrdom of the "Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan"(“ú–{26¹l}‹³ŽÒ).  Now it is an international pilgrimage site.  Nishizaka Park is located at the hill called "Nishizaka" (lit. the Western Hill) in Nishizaka-cho, Nagasaki City (’·èŽs¼â’¬): 5 minutes' walk up to the Japanese version of the hill of Golgotha [Calvary] from JR Nagasaki Station.  The "Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan" of 1597 are: Saint Antonio Dainan, Saint Bonaventura of Miyako, Saint Cosme Takeya, Saint Francisco Branco, Saint Francisco of Nagasaki, Saint Francisco of Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel de Duisco, Saint Gaius Francis, Saint Gundisalvus (Gonsalvo) Garcia, Saint Isabel Fernandez, Saint Ignatius Jorjes, Saint James Kisai, Saint Joaquim Saccachibara, Saint Juan Kisaka, Saint Juan Soan de Goto, Saint Leo Karasumaru, Saint Luis Ibaraki, Saint Martin of the Ascension Saint Mathias of Miyako, Saint Miguel Kozaki, Saint Paulo Ibaraki, Saint Paul Miki or Saint Paulo Miki, Saint Pablo Suzuki, Saint Pedro Bautista [Saint Peter Baptist], Saint Pedro Sukejiroo, Saint Philip of Jesus, Saint Thomas Kozaki and Saint Thomas Xico.
  On February 5, 1597, six foreign missionaries and twenty Japanese Christians were crucified on this hill.  They had been arrested in Kyoto and Osaka, and taken to Nagasaki, ten years after the promulgation of the decree outlawing Christianity.  Canonized by Pope Pius IX in 1862, this monument erected in 1962, wants to be a tribute to their heroism.  Pilgrims from all over the world come how to this hill and to pray at St. Philippos' Church behind the monument.
  The Navarrese Jesuit missionary St. Francis Xavier arrived in another part of the territory in 1549, but left for China in 1551 and died soon afterwards.  His followers who remained behind converted a number of daimyo (‘å–¼; feudal lords).  Due to the instability during the Sengoku Period (Warlike Ages between 15th - 16th c.), Sumitada Omura (‘呺ƒ’‰) and Jesuit leader Alexandro Valignano conceived a plan to pass administrative control over to the Society of Jesus rather than see the Catholic city taken over by a non-Catholic daimyo.   Thus, for a brief period after 1580, the city of Nagasaki was a Jesuit colony, under their administrative and military control. It became a refuge for Christians escaping maltreatment in other regions of Japan.
  In 1587, however, Hideyoshi Toyotomi (–LbG‹g)'s campaign to unify the country arrived in Kyushu.  Concerned with the large Christian influence in southern Japan, as well as the active and what was perceived as the arrogant role the Jesuits were playing in the Japanese political arena,  Hideyoshi ordered the expulsion of all missionaries, and placed the city under his direct control.  However, the expulsion order went largely unenforced, and the fact remained that most of Nagasaki's population remained openly practicing Catholics.  In 1596, the Spanish ship San Felipe was wrecked off the coast of Shikoku (ƒTƒ“ƒtƒFƒŠƒy†Ž–Œ), and Hideyoshi learned from its pilot that the Spanish Franciscans were the vanguard of an Iberian invasion of Japan.  In response, Hideyoshi ordered the crucifixions of twenty-six Catholics in Nagasaki on February 5 of that year (“ú–{26¹l}‹³ŽÒ; the "Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan").  Portuguese traders were not ostracized, however, and so the city continued to thrive.

Urakami Cathedral
     Urakami Tenshu-do (‰Yã“VŽå“°) or Urakami Cathedral (‰Yã‹³‰ï) is located at 1-79 Motoo-cho, Nagasaki City (’·èŽs–{”ö’¬1-79).  After nearly 300-year oppression between Momoyama Period and Edo Period, Urakami Christians built the greatest Romanesque cathedral of East Asia between 1895-1925 after the Meiji Restoration in 1868.  On March 17, 1865 (Œ³Ž¡2”N), 15 crypto-Christians of Urakami Village (‰Yã‘º) went to the new Catholic Oura Church (‘å‰Y“VŽå“°) to confess their faith before Father Bernard-Thadee Petitjean (1829-1884) of Missions Etrangeres de Paris (ƒpƒŠŠO‘é‹³‰ï).  It was a historical moment and a beginning of the tragedy of further martyrdom.  Even after the Meiji Restoration in 1868, the new Japanese Government did not allow the freedom of religion.  So they regarded the discovered crypto-Christians as the targets of punishment and sent them to some unfamiliar places to be convinced to apostatize Christianity.
  In 1868, 66 crypto-Christians were sent to Hagi City, Yamaguchi from Urakami, Nagasaki.  63 out of the 66 apostatized.  In 1869 134 Christians were sent here from Urakami and the majority did not abandon their faith.  43 Christians died until the rest were finally allowed to go back to Urakami in 1873 (–¾Ž¡6”N).  Father Villion (ƒrƒŠƒˆƒ“_•ƒ) of Missions Etrangeres de Paris bought the land of martyrdom in 1891 (–¾Ž¡24”N) and built a monument for the martyrs.
  There were 153 crypto-Christians who were sent to the Korin-ji Temple [Œõ—ÔŽ›] site, Tsuwano Town, Shimane from Urakami Village, Nagasaki from 1868 (–¾Ž¡‰”N) to 1873 (–¾Ž¡6”N).  They spent the tortured four years here until 54 finally apostatize their faith.  36 were tormented to death.  The rest could manage to come back to Nagasaki remaining their faith in 1873 when the Japanese government finally abolished the 259-year-old Prohibition of Christianity starting from AD 1614 (Œc’·19”N).
  Thus after 1873 (–¾Ž¡6”N), Japanese Christians can pray for Jesus freely and openly.  However, the original Urakami Tenshu-do was destroyed by the appalling US atomic bomb attack on August 9, 1945.  The present cathedral is a postwar reconstruction.  No photo is permitted inside.

(Monday 22 March) Existing one-legged shrine gate, San-no-jinjya Shrine (ŽR‰¤_ŽÐ).
  This arch was built in October 1924 as the second torii arch at San-no-jinjya Shrine.  The explosion of the atomic bomb at 11:02 a.m., August 9, 1945 slapped down one of the pillars.  Located only 800 meters southeast of the hypocenter, the upper parts of the arches were scorched black by the fierce radiating heat, one of the pillars and its upper parts were destroyed by the blast, and the top part of the crossbeam shifted in the opposite direction as a result of the blast pressure.
  An explosion of a single atomic bomb reduced the surrounding neighborhood to ashes and rubble, but this arch endured the blast and continues to this day to stand on only one pillar as though testifying to the atomic bomb devastation.  The base of the pillar and its adjoining parts have been reinforced to ensure safety.

(Monday 22 March) Urakami Cathedral Wall Remnant (‰Yã“VŽå“°ˆâ•Ç), Hypocenter of the Atomic Bomb Explosion.  Also see the photos of the present Urakami Cathedral reconstructed above.
  Urakami Cathedral was located on a small hill about 500 meters northeast of the atomic bomb hypocenter.  Construction of the church was started in 1895 and completed in 1914 through donations and voluntary labor service to Catholic believers.  In 1925, the bell towers at the church entrance also reached completion.
  The explosion of the atomic bomb at 11:02 a.m., August 9, 1945 destroyed Urakami Cathedral, the grandest church in East Asia at the time.  Only the broken church wall remained.  A portion of the southern wall was brought here to make new way for the construction of a new church building in 1958 (see above).  The stone statues on the column depict Christ and one of his apostles.  Since the wall was weakened over time by exposure to the elements, the interior and surface of the wall were reinforced for safety.

(Monday 22 March) Stone lanterns at Ten-no-zan Shotoku-ji Temple (“V‰¤ŽR ¹“¿Ž› “”âÄ), Hypocenter of the Atomic Bomb Explosion.
  Located about 1.5 km south-southeast of the hypocenter, Ten-no-zan Shotoku-ji Temple was founded in the 3rd year of Kaei (‰Ã‰i3”N) or 1626, and this pair of stone lanters was later donated by faithful parishioners.
  The atomic bomb explosion at 11:02., August 9, 1945 crushed the grand main hall (made totally of fine kyaki wood) and toppled almost all of the statues and gravestones in the temple compound.  Only these stone lanterns remained standing.  Donated to Nagasaki City as reminders of the devastation caused by the atomic bombing, these lanterns were re-erected on the present spot in February 1949.
  
     
The Reconstructed Dejima
     The Reconstructed Nagasaki Dejima (’·è o“‡) is located at 6-1 Dejima-machi, Nagasaki City (’·èŽso“‡’¬6-1) as an interesting museum.  During the period of national isolation (½‘Žž‘ã), Dejima was the center of trade and culture in Japan, and through international exchange introduced Japan to the world.
  In order to enforce the government ban on Christian proselytizing by Portuguese missionaries, a manmade island to house the Portuguese covering an area of about 15,000 sq. meters was built by influential residents of Nagasaki under orders from the Tokugawa Shogunate government in 1636.  This manmade island was Dejima.
  Dejima was a center of trade and also used as the living quarters of the Dutch employees who conducted trade, functioning both as a trade facility as well as being home to merchants.  The Dutch employees and Japanese who visited Dejima were not allowed to come and go freely.  Despite being Japan's window to the world, Dejima itself was a closed place.
  During Japan's period of national isolation, plethora of foreign culture and technology was introduced to Japan through Dejima.  In the same way, Dejima represented the only window to Japan to the Dutch who collected a variety of information on Japan and its culture and disseminated it widely throughout the Western world.  Dejma played a vital role as a place of international exchange between Japan and the West.  (Quoted from the official pamphlet.)

Catholic Oura Church
     Catholic Oura Church (‘å‰Y“VŽå“°) is located at 5-3 Minimi-Yamato-cho, Nagasaki City (’·èŽs“ìŽRŽè’¬5-3).  It is the oldest existing church in southern Japan.  Construction was begun in December, 1863 and completed a year later.  Dedicated to the Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan on February 19, 1865.  On March 17, 1865 (Œ³Ž¡2”N), 15 crypto-Christians of Urakami Village (‰Yã‘º) came to the new church to confess their faith before Father Bernard-Thadee Petitjean (1829-1884) of Missions Etrangeres de Paris (ƒpƒŠŠO‘é‹³‰ï).  It was a historical moment and a beginning of the tragedy of further martyrdom.  See the above explanation for Urakami Cathedral (‰Yã“VŽå“°); see also the "Juan Goto and Crypto-Christians" page, the Tsuwano Town page and the Hagi City page.
  The church itself remains as the oldest Gothic style wooden church in Japan.  It served as the cathedral church until January, 1962 when the title was transferred to the newly reconstructed Urakami Cathedral.  No photo is permitted inside.

  After travelling to Nagasaki from Scotland, Thomas Blake Glover built a house on the hill in Minami-Yamate in 1863.  Nagasaki then was vibrant with the energy of people looking toward a new dawn for Japan.  Here were te merchants from across the oceans, pursuing dreams of fortune; the revolutionaries seeking an end to the Tokugawa Shogunate; and the youth of Japan eager to study the West.  Today, over a century later, the memories of Glover's life with his Japanese wife and their children remain, untouched, along with the homes of the merchants who lived in Nagasaki and loved the city.  This is a good place to reconsider the importance of Nagasaki having traded with foreign countries touching their cultures for centuries.
