About this sight

Located in a hillside residential area of Nagasaki, this slope is known as Oranda-zaka, or "Dutch Slope". During the second half of the 19th century, Western merchants, most notably Dutch, started settling in the steep streets of this area. At the starting point of the slope, visitors can find a monument to the ruins of the Protestant Church of England built in 1862, the first of its kind in Japan.
