    This church is a 15-minute walk from JR Takahashi station. Built in 1889, it is now the oldest church building in the prefecture, and is the second oldest protestant church in Japan after the chapel at Doshisha University. It stands out for its balcony and belfry on the roof, and is a designated prefectural historic site. It is free to enter, and you can tour any time between 9 am and 5 pm, except for Sunday mornings. Christian missionary work began in Takahashi in 1879, but took off in earnest in 1880, when construction began on this church.

    Okayama Pref. Okayamashi Kita-ku Ifukuchou 3-20-12

    道路脇に寺号碑が立ち寺院である事が分かりました。一見すると外観は少し大きめの住宅か事務所風で、手前のショップの看板の方が目立っていました。猶、主要な施設は会談で上がった2階部分となっているようでした。

Okayama Areas

around-area-map

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
