Suwa Shrine

The origins of Nagasaki’s Suwa Shrine can be traced back to the 1500s. Originally located at present day Teramachi Dori (temple street), this shrine, together with other Buddhist and Shinto relics, was destroyed by the Christians. In an effort to revive the Shinto faith, Suwa Shrine was rebuilt in 1625 and relocated to its present location in 1648.

The Nagasaki Kunchi Festival, with over 380 years of history, takes place here October 7–9 annually and is one of the largest festivals in Japan.
