Nagasaki Things to Do: 87 reviews and 199 photos
This is the site of where 26 Martyrs were crucified (6 European Franciscan missionaries, 3 Japanese Jesuits and 17 Japanese laymen (including 3 boys)). They were crucified (on the hill right next to this monument) and then run through with spears.
The Church of the Holy Japanese Martyrs is one of the wierdest looking Catholic Churches I've ever seen (from the outside). The inside is not so strange.
