Nanzan Catholic Church is located near the main Nanzan University campus in the up-market streets south of Irinaka subway station just a little west of Yagoto.
The early church here began life in 1950 as a Nissen hut with tatami floors to serve the staff of Nanzan school. The modernist church set in lush gardens on a small hill that is seen today was completed in 1958. Nanzan Catholic Church is part of the Catholic Diocese of Nagoya which is centered on Nunoike Cathedral in Shin-Sakae.
Mass is held in Japanese, English and Vietnamese at various times. Consult the website (below) for full details.
