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.


The nearby the Ground Zero in Nagasaki Peace Park contains remnants of the Ruins of Urakami Cathedral
