  • It recalls the latent Christian in the age of the prohibition order. A church with a low tile roof with a thick white wall built to avoid the wind on a sea-windy high ground facing the open sea. Six months after the discovery of the believers at Oura Cathedral, he returned to Catholicism by visiting Father PetitJean. The church and related facilities were built by Father De Lo, who was subsequently assigned to the church. From the church without stained glass, I felt the history of Japanese Christianity supported by the deep est of believers and strong sense of mission. Church tours must be booked in advance at the information center. The church guard explained a lot of things.

  • The volunteer explainer explains that the whole looks white because the roof is low design and brick making so that it can withstand strong winds by father Doro' design, and the surface is painted with plaster. In the church yard is a bust of Father Doro and Paul Nakamura. You can also park your car.
