Sakitsu athedral Church, Amakusa

(4.2/5 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.

  • From the warehouse in Kagoshima until ushibuka ferry, arrived at Amakusa. Route from the South to the North sound characteristically did. It is amazingly quiet port. Parking is also on several. On the road through the main car is a car park for tourists. It was, there is a parking lot was displayed properly, please. Before entering the sakitu Cathedral, located diagonally across from the Cathedral, we went with. Tourist information was not so H28.8 could have been so good to go. Two-storey wooden building in the diorama of sakitu, you can learn about the spread of Christianity and Christian. Also on the second floor. And sakitu Church is a place free of charge, but is not allowed to take the half more than walk forward for non-intrusiveness. It is during the one minute without officials, would form. Holy water because the children ranked it a little intrigued. It is a village by the sea in a quiet and very narrow road. I thought with no need for a world heritage site. I thought that a lot of people, break the atmosphere of this quiet Cathedral, what for?. Also, because in this agar-agar to move northward from the South route for tourism, all in slightly and the OE Cathedral's Rosary history about the missionary or the kakure Kirishitan learned, including other Christian didn't. So much the same content but get bored children. Museum of this kind in Amakusa, that many have put the description in the video and easy-to-understand children. I also go to all the Museum because it is easy to understand, can understand of it. And I pick a museum along tourist routes, I think.

  •  In the stately Gothic hung the cross on the steeple Church, was rebuilt during the France harrub priest 0/1934, is the current church. I felt the weight of history, 1638 kin decree after a crackdown in this area was done by Almeida father Christian missionaries in 1569, while 240 years has been guarded as latent-Christian faith.
