The Rise of Six Towns
In 1571 when Nagasaki port was first opened, Sumitada Omura, Japan's first Christian feudal lord, founded Japan's six towns on a long cape that is now Nagasaki city. The six towns were Hirado-machi, Omura-machi, Shimabara-machi, Yokouraze-machi, Sotoura-machi and Bunchi-machi. Other towns in Nagasaki such as Kozen-machi and Sakura-machi, to name a few, were later built by merchants who came from other parts of Japan. In 1580 the head office of the Jesus Society was founded on Nagasaki soil since the whole Nagasaki and Mogi areas had been donated to the Jesus Society by Sumitada Omura. As aresult, the city became one of the largest centers for Christanity in Asia and it is said that the city was like a mini Rome.
