  • It is a Catholic church built on the site of the Samurai House in the late Meiji period. Gate is completely one of the Samurai House in the chairs arranged on the tatami and Western format is interesting. Rare black Mary, was a gift from France? This alone is worth seeing.

  • Black Maria-us only together with the statue of Christ is surrounded by beautiful stained-glass Windows when entering the Church is small but very clean, and Japan. I had a solemn experience.

  • It is a Catholic Church located in Tsuruoka city. Walk a little apart from Tsuruoka station about 2 kilometers from 20-it takes about 25 minutes. So that would be good if you are visiting here to use the bus. Yunohama Beach springs to Atsumi Onsen went to ride from Tsuruoka station and get off at City Hall-Mae Bus stop. Bus station and then return to the River, Hey North you go see red spires, immediately see. Maria kindergarten bus stop is located before the Church, but this doesn't stop at bus only, and even bus on weekdays 3 not only is hard to use. Building Church is naturally in the Meiji era, was built in 1903, is. Take the Red Spire roof white walls, is a beautiful appearance. Romanesque architecture in the Meiji era seems unusual, is provided in the important cultural asset in the country. So funny is built in the Shonai clan Chief retainer of the House's original gate that is the old Samurai residences. Behind it is the Church, this mismatch is interesting. Inside the Basilica is the transept. There are aisles. In addition, and Liv-Vault ceiling of Romanesque architecture, seems to have incorporated elements of Gothic architecture. This is well seen in the churches of the Northeast, with tatami flooring. More rare, is festooned with the Black Madonna. Practised in Japan black Virgin, is in Japan is not only. It is recommended you stop when you visit the statue of our Lady is a beautiful church, not only in some of the Tsuruoka. However, because there are nursery schools in front of students and teachers, such as not to disturb attention is needed.

  • It is a Black Madonna statue only in Japan, Tsuruoka Catholic Church. And here look out for Black Madonna statue and window glass is usually the Church is stained glass, but this church was built in old age for a "collage" of is. It seems is holding between glass and glass painting.

  • Tsuruoka town is still the old Western-style architecture. In fact, other-style architecture. Real is only property Papin FR design. I think Christ Church located in Japan and one of the most beautiful. Gates of old Samurai residences and over time will fit nice.
