Not particularly religious but I went to Sasebo after Huis Ten Bosch with a JR North Kyushu Railpasss which enabled me to travel unlimited wherever I wanted. Passed by the church after I mailed a post card from the post office.

Well, it's worth a visit if you are there. It's a "regular" church, but I guess it stands out in a small Japanese city.

This is a beautiful Catholic Church nearby JR Sasebo Station. It was moved to this location in 1931 and considered as a target of air raids during WW II, it was once stained by black smoke. There are quite a few stairs to the top.
