大浦天主堂
Oura Church
Ōura Church (Ōura Tenshudō) is a Roman Catholic church in Nagasaki, Japan, built soon after the end of the Japanese government’s Seclusion Policy in 1853. It is also known as the Church of the 26 Japanese Martyrs. It was for many years the only western-style building declared a national treasure, and is said to be the oldest church in Japan.

グラバー園 (旧グラバー邸)
Glover Garden
Glover Garden is a park in Nagasaki, Japan built for Thomas Blake Glover, a Scottish merchant who contributed to the modernization of Japan in shipbuilding, coal mining, and other fields. In it stands the Glover Residence, the oldest Western style house surviving in Japan and Nagasaki’s foremost tourist attraction.
It is located on the Minamiyamate hillside overlooking Nagasaki harbor. It was built by Hidenoshin Koyama of Amakusa island and completed in 1863. It has been designated as an Important Cultural Asset. As the house and its surroundings are reminiscent of Puccini’s opera, it is also known as the “Madame Butterfly House.” Statues of Puccini and diva Miura Tamaki, famed for her role as Cio-Cio-san, stand in the park near the house. This house was also the venue of Glover’s meetings with rebel samurai particularly from the Chōshū and Satsuma domains.

The long period of national isolation ended in 1859, and Nagasaki, Yokohama and Hakodate were opened for foreign trade as treaty ports. The foreign merchants arriving in Nagasaki built offices and residences in the foreign settlement and engaged in trade.

長崎・南山手,大浦天主堂と旧グラバー邸(グラバー園)の表情です。
1859年(安政6年)に長崎港が開港場となった後、東山手と同じく外国人居留地となりましたが、南山手は主に住宅地として用いられました。また,居留する外国人のために大浦天主堂が建てられました。
1991年(平成3年)に重要伝統的建造物群保存地区として選定されています。
