In August, a special exhibition will be held at Oura Catholic Church Christian Museum in Nagasaki!

July 17 2023

The special exhibition "Encounter with Father Sidotti: The Japanese who knew the West" will be held at Oura Catholic Church Christian Museum in Nagasaki. The period is from Saturday, August 26th to Thursday, October 19th.

When we visited the museum for a meeting, we were deeply moved by the retro appearance of the museum, which made use of the wooden buildings of the former Archbishop's Palace and the former Latin Seminary built in the Meiji period.The place was a foreign settlement. Next door is the Glover Garden, which is lined with historic buildings such as Thomas Glover's mansion.

After leaving Yakushima, Sidotti stayed at the Nagasaki Magistrate's Office for over a year. In that sense, it can be said that it is a place of connection. Whether or not the road to Edo was opened, this Nagasaki became a big key point.
