Opening the port created Christian town Nagasaki in 1570


Nagasaki Port was opened in 1570 by Sumitada Omura, who was the first feudal lord

in Japan to be baptized as a Christian.

At that time, there was a Christian family who immigrated with Figueiredo.

Many of them were people fleeing persecution, coming from Shimabara, Iki, Goto,

Hirado, and Yamaguchi. This was the beginning of the Christian town Nagasaki.


Sumitada Omura donated the territories of Nagasaki and Mogi to the Jesuits in order

to fend off attacks from nearby enemies.

In 1580, Japan Society of Jesus established its headquarters in Nagasaki.
