Confucius Shrine

 

The world’s only Confucian shrine built outside China by Chinese hands

 

First built in 1893 by Chinese residents of Nagasaki with the support of the Ch’ing 

Dynasty government, the shrine was designed to serve as a place of worship and 

learning for the Chinese community, and housed a Confucian sanctuary and primary school. 

The buildings were severely damaged by the Atomic bomb explosion on August 9, 1945 and were

not restored and opened to the public until September 1967.
The shrine was extensively renovated in 1982. 

Standing outside the shrine are 72 statues representing the 72 followers of Confucius

 

A building at the rear of the shrine houses the Museum of Chinese History and Palace Museum.

It features large illuminated photographs of the old Silk Road and models of 

early Chinese inventions such as the world’s first seismograph. 

 

Displayed on the second floor are more than 80 treasure-class articles of varying antiquity on loan directly from the Chinese National Museum and Palace Museum in Beijing.

Ground Zero

 

Disastrous War must not be repeated.

 

The plutonium atomic bomb exploded about 500m over the central monument

at 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945. 

The most part of Nagasaki was destroyed, and a tremendous number of lives
were lost.  

And about 70,000 of Nagasaki’s 240,000 residents died instantly, and up to 60,000 were injured.

Peace Fountain at Nagasaki Peace Park

 

Peace Fountain reminds us of the tragic scene unfolded shortly after America dropped

the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki at 11:02 am on Aug. 09, 1945.
With the completion of the Peace Fountain on Aug. 3, 1969, a monument inscribed with an

epitaph was constructed. Many people were burned deeply and died, crying and groaning

for water. When people recovered their peaceful life in 1965, a campaign for a Peace Fountain 

was launched.

Recorded on the monument are the name of the founder including the People’s Congress for

Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and Promotion of Peace and the Committee for the Construction

of the Peace Fountain.

 


 

Part of the epitaph reads as follows: To those who visit this place today. 
May you offer prayers to console the souls of those killed and promote peace.

Martyrdom of the 26 Saints of Japan

 

Nishizaka Hill in Nagasaki reminds us of the Martyrdom of 26 Japanese Saints.

 
Their long trek to the Cross, verification of their faith in God and their chant for ascension
are well visualized with memorial made by Yasutake Funakoshi.
 

On February 5, 1597, Paulo Miki and 25 others were crucified for their belief in God on

order of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. 

The martyrs including four Spaniards, one from Goa, India, one Mexican and 20 Japanese

demonstrated their spiritual unity despite differences in races, ages and professions.

  

Nishizaka hill, the site of

Martyrdom in 1597

The martyrs said that 

” All people, bless God ! ”  

The 26 Japanese martyrs have 

been canonized in 1862

By putting them to death, Hideyoshi threatened people, saying I hereby ban Christianity”. 
Responded the martyrs’ chant “All people, bless God!  Death and life, liberty and persecution
and Dictators and the people confronted on Nishizaka Hill. 
 

The martyrs are immortal.

In 1862, the 26 Japanese martyrs were canonized by Pope Pius IX. In 1956, the place of

their martyrdom was designated as a Historical Place by Nagasaki Prefecture.

A monument dedicated to them was built on June 10 in 1962.

Urakami Cathedral

 

Construction of the original Urakami Cathedral, a brick Romanesque building, began in 1895,

after a long-standing ban on Christianity was lifted.

When completed in 1914, it was the largest Catholic church in East Asia.

 

The atomic bomb dropped on August 9, 1945 explored in Urakami, only 500m from the

cathedral, which was completely destroyed. What remained of the cathedral is now on display 

in the Atomic Bomb Museum.

A replacement was built in 1959, and remodeled to more closely resemble the original in 1980.
