While it has a Western-style Dutch trading house and many churches, it also features Hirado Castle. The overlapping view of Western-style Francisco de Xavier Memorial Church and Japanese temples is very unique to this area. It is worth going a little further from Nagasaki City to visit Hirado.

Address 1473 Iwanoue-cho, Hirado City, Nagasaki Pref.
