Two years after Francis Xavier came to Japan in 1549, he went to Oita City and offered Christian mission to Sorin Otomo, the landlord of Bungo, and agreed to it.
Since then, many missionaries have come to live, Christianity under Sorin has spread to various places, and various facilities such as Deusu-do and elementary schools have been built, which has made it a town with Western culture and an exotic atmosphere.
The origin of the Nanban bell is that while remembering the sound of the Angelus bell (prayer of the announcement, the bell of the announcement), the figure of the great pioneer Christian daimyo Sorin Francisco and the figure of the Nanban people are expressed with clay bells.
In Kasugaura, Oita City, Oita Prefecture, there is a statue of Sorin Otomo along with a monument to the Nanban trade site.
