Suwa Shrine has a long and complicated past. It began in 1614, the same year as Tokugawa's edict against Christianity. The shrine was formed as a way to unite the community against the growing population of Christian-converted Japanese in the area, which outnumbered the Shinto and Buddhist population. Many local Christians took to destroying the shrine's progress until a priest, Aoki Kensei, came to Nagasaki in 1624 and put a halt to interference. The shrine was later used as a census location in 1634 and required Christians to register and renounce their faith or face extreme penalties and in severe cases, death.
