  •  A if the Amakusa-shimojima Island charm, converging in Dolphin and the Church.  About dolphinwatching, one of the appeal went to the island then, although still no experience in relation to the time it is visited for the first time earlier this year (7/2017) about the Church on the other hand.    Got the feeling of being protected by the strong faith of the locals visited the OE Cathedral and Cathedral sakitu, but not both tourist oriented and likable and has fostered over the years.  Also known as kakure Kirishitan, Amakusa-shimojima island.  Historical fact, faith tucked away in a hidden room in the attic of a House like, but I imagine that Edo period, avoiding the eyes of the shogunate's Cave, prayers were in Amakusa Rosario Hotel, this was a surprise. In the same view point, on the Western side of the island sunset sunset line that Japan's top 100 chosen, here is the sunset sea dyed red as it is seen.  It is from the photo to hobby by all means shoot would like to try. In this way a lot of attractions Amakusa-shimojima island. With time still on the island under the 1 nights room is a tourist would like to.

  • It was amazing place because beautiful white chapel in the middle of very Japanese country farm.  more »
  • Institute to explore Cathedral sakitu, OE Cathedral, 13 French parks, 5 pairs of shoes walking, Shimoda hot springs, Tomioka Castle and enjoy. Is not well, however, in the car was in a rental car for the old, or more, had a hard time. The road along the coast is relatively high-power, but once into the mountain passes and narrow way, tired by a series of curves.
