Kyushu Travel Guide

Suwa Shrine

 

The spiritual and cultural hub for the citizens of Nagasaki

 

The complex of building and gardens comprising Suwa Shrine nestles on a shaded stretch of

hillside overlooking the heart of Nagasaki-city. The shrine was founded in the wake of ban

of Christianity in the early 17th century, and during the Edo Period it soon grew into a

spiritual and cultural hub for the citizens of Nagasaki. 

 

During Meiji and Taisho Periods, it was not only Nagasaki’s foremost Shinto shrine but also

this city’s most popular destination for foreign tourist who came seeking a glimpse into heart

of Japan.

 


 

Kunchi festival

Held from October 7 to 9 every year and is considered one of the three major festivals of

Japan, being designated as an Important Intangible Cultural Asset.
