Sakitsu athedral Church, Amakusa

(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I came across on a bicycle tour. Take a look at photos in the guide book in advance. Is the place to go because there's a little distance from Amakusa Hondo slightly, take a look at try. In a quiet Cathedral looks like floating across the harbor is plain grey, just looking at mind becomes calm. It is a place not want become famous. Please visit without preconception.

  • Fisher is seen through the normal and there is nothing ordinary small Cove Museum minato屋 and the Cathedral town and know the history of the oppression of Christ conveyed quite the passion of people of the past. Along with the silent film.

  • Towards a world heritage site, around the neighborhood seems to have to prepare steadily. To the parking lot near the building's narrow roads. Additional parking is also being there. You could see it was a weekday, so quiet.
