Sakitsu athedral Church, Amakusa

4.2
Overlooking the picturesque harbor of a small, rustic fishing village, Sakitsu athedral Church provides a lovely view of the area. With the present structure built in 1934 by a French missionary, the construction of this neo-Gothic cathedral was supervised by a Japanese architect, a fact reflected in its visible mixture of styles. The stairs above the cathedral lead to Sakistu Chapel Bells observation deck, from where you can enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the surrounding mountains, bays, and inlets. If you want to enter the cathedral, you will still need to remove your shoes. You can reach the site by bus, getting off at the Kyokai-iriguchi stop.

    Small fishing village because it is a note in the car. Free 2-3 cars can be parked there is several places scattered, but want to do linger.

    It was a spot eager Amakusa City tourism into great power in relation to world heritage. Active, such as the sightseeing guide volunteers, established near the restrooms and parking. Museum nearby, city officials who carefully taught, history of the Church. Inside is a very solemn and tastefully decorated. I felt the greatness of the inhabitants have preserved the faith despite the persecuted kakure Kirishitan, history, during the Edo period.
