  • Renovated a few years ago. Image of the ship is being built in and is likely. Will change the color of the light inside and looking up to the ceiling, crazy over time. I think is best to rethink their quiet.

  • The Catholic religion is uncommon to the Japan but is about 2-3 million followers and has allowed this country to open up to Western customs even if subsequently the Christians have paid dearly for their presence (persecution, repression, crucifixion and eradication). It is the Cathedral by several times destroyed and rebuilt with now a contemporary style that does not detract from its charm on the contrary she shows that she really be in unison with the modern Japan.

  • This Church-Cathedral commemorates one of the most important historical events in the history of Japan, the beginning of the Christian evangelization carried out by the Spanish Jesuit S. Francisco Javier. This marked the start of a process of opening to the customs of the West of the era, which was truncated in the middle of the century to Japan 17TH when they are serrated outside. There are some small ruins of the former Church opposite the current building. It is striking inside the stained glass windows of blue and red. The first by the color of the sea, via which obviously became the Holy after a storm, and the second by the color of the crab according to tradition had been seized in a clip a cross that fell to the Holy. The Church in Japanese and signs was explaining a friendly lady who was there. Fortunately that gave us a booklet in English.
