Christianity was brought to Japan by Xavier in 1549.
This is Ouratenshu-do (Oura church) in Nagasaki.
It was built by the French after national isolation ended in 1865.
It is one of the a oldest wooden gothic buildings and the only national treasure of western architecture in Japan.
Glover Garden is one of the travel spots in Nagasaki.
Thomas Grover was a successful trader from Scotland.
The house he made in 1863 and several other reconstructed houses from that time are there.
Those are among oldest wooden Western houses.
The Gardens are also beautiful and you can see good view of Nagasaki from that place.

This is Meganebashi in Nagasaki.
Megane means glasses and bashi means bridge.
It is located the place a little distance from Hamanomachi, which is in the center of the city.
It was called Meganebashi because the bridge and its reflection together look like a pair of glasses, as in this picture.
I took these photos from a hotel I stayed in.
Nagasaki is one of three major night views of Japan.
