  • We watch the movies [silence] opportunity to once again appreciated here and the Shimabara Castle (1st floor)-Christian historical heart sound is deeper now. Because after watching each article after watching a movie [silence] is just watching the article just exhibited as a reality difficult to touch the heart of the scene in the movie each overlap head in each article float from "course 26 Saints 0/1596 (1597) in December in Shimabara rebellion [October 0/1637 (1637)-0/1638 (1638) February] and after the [silence] is I think that time is". [Silence] inside the Memorial as a related article two; "Holy image: St. Mary of the snow" and exhibited a "loyalty test". Possible photo shoot article 26 martyrs Museum in photography are prohibited unless Christians of the Shimabara Castle intended profit (however Flash available) so are the memories you want to leave feeling strong recommend the Shimabara Castle (1st floor)-Christian historical appreciation. The 26 martyrs Museum and monument is at the back of the 26 martyrs martyrs monument location, unaware and unconsciously may miss.

  • Nagasaki station, airport bus takes about an hour and a half, and is the nearest tourist destination? Because so far and looked for the 200 m was stopped by. Just the believers, men 26 people were fit the hand in front of the monument to Saints. Believers but not me, I instinctively fit the hand. It was here martyred by Toyotomi Hideyoshi oura. During the Memorial history of Christian suppression that heaviness up was being talked about. That immense happiness of people who leaned against the faith in the belief that I cannot understand you in the thought that in this sense. Nagasaki is hilly city, is going so far, but not much distance, slope, I was.

  • Definitely worth a visit given its spiritual significance. Monument honors in a meaningful way the courage and bravery of these martyrs in Japanese history.
  • A solemn memorial to the ultimate sacrifice early Christians gave to share God's love to Japan.
  • Is part of Catholic history of the city and Japan. Worth the visit.
