Sakitsu athedral Church, Amakusa
(4.2/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • Went by car from Kumamoto city. Is far away so it takes plenty of 2 hours and a half, you could come. Feel the history, but it's not that simple, especially what it is here time stops, such as space is.

  • Know the history of the building and impressed by the profundity of the Cathedral. From the cash-strapped side concrete, later, wooden cross towers is a lovely Gothic-style building. Inside, concrete and wooden edges don't quite unusual tatami. Headman yactac trail France people missionaries harrub father once made take pictures then the altar is placed. You can convince the Church located on village landscape important cultural landscape of the country have been selected, but come sakitu.
