Nagasaki Koshibyo Confucian Shrine

The Nagasaki Koshibyo Confucian Shrine was established in 1893 through a group effort between the Qing Dynasty government and the Chinese people living in Nagasaki at the time. It is a famous tourist attraction of Nagasaki because it is the only authentic Chinese-style Mausoleum in Japan. Furthermore, this shrine is a popular area for the community because it is used as one of the main venues for several festivals in Nagasaki, most importantly the Nagasaki Lantern Festival. Behind the shrine, there is a museum with many great artifacts related to the Confucius era and the cultural history of China.
