Sakitsu athedral Church, Amakusa

4.3
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 kneeling on the mat, it came to worship him. Now age increases had put a Chair on the mat. It is young people less would go out in the city. I wonder if young people come back if registered on the World Heritage list. Tatami in Nagano told miniatures tatami mats with volunteer craftsman and was deeply moved.

  • Taught and the Cathedral is no fishing is during the Edo period 7% of the inhabitants of the village were kakure Kirishitan. Feel the history. And to those interested in the history of the kakure Kirishitan places not to be missed.

  • Cars in a parking lot and immediately visited the people who can provide assistance. Very small village so quickly that can drive around during the. Is the very atmosphere of the Church. Even if it sees from the sea from the front so picturesque.
