Travel Guide - Twenty-Six Martyrs Monument and Memorial Hall

InformationInformation

Twenty-Six Martyrs Monument was erected in memory of 6 foreign missionaries including Saint Pedro Bautista and 20 Japanese Christians who were all crucified in this place on February 5, 1597 as a result of Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s decree prohibiting Christianity. It is said that the reason why this place was selected as a place for execution is because the small hill here looks like Golgotha. On the outer wall of Twenty-Six Martyrs Memorial Hall are the statues of the saints carved in relief. The monument and memorial hall were both built in 1962 as a part of Nishizaka park and designated as one of the official pilgrimage sites by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
