Kofukuji Temple



After the Tokugawa Shogunate banned Christianity, non-Christian Chinese merchants 

began making port at Nagasaki around 1600. Chinese people soon started living in Nagasaki

and etitioned the Nagasaki government to let them built a Chinese temple to pray for safe

navigation and console of the deceased. Permission was granted for the construction of 

first Chinese temple.


Kofukuji Temple was completed in 1620, and Chinese traders then planned to invite a high-ranking

priest from China as the temple’s chief abbot. The Kofukuji Temple’s present main hall was built in 

1883 by Chinese experts who were invited to Japan mainly by residents in Nagasaki hailing from

Nanjin. It was designated as an Important Cultural Asset.
