    Kumamoto Amakusa-shi Kawauramachi Sakitsu 539
    "A Gothic style church reconstructed in 1934. The composed and dignified building has a spire with a crucifix on top. The chapel's floor is covered with tatami mats, which is rare in Japan. The ""hidden Christians"" from the hamlet of Sakitsu on Yokaku Bay maintained their faith for nearly 240 years in the face of intense persecution that started with the complete ban of the religion in 1638. Also known as the ""Church of the Sea,"" the whole fishing port area where it stands was selected as an Important National Cultural Landscape in 2011."

    Kumamoto Pref. Amakusashi Amakusamachioe 1782
    Approximately a five-minute walk from the Tenshudo Iriguchi bus stop, this church was the first built in Amakusa after the ban on Christianity was lifted. The current building was built in 1933 with the private funds of the French missionary Father Garnier who dedicated his life to spreading Christianity in Amakusa. A building with Romanesque architecture, the church with beautiful white walls is a symbol of Christianity in Amakusa to this day. There are statues of Father Garnier and the Virgin Mary on the premises. It is also known for being visited by five poets such as Yosano Tekkan.

    獲れたて鮮魚を市場直送した刺身は、新鮮で、お酒にも良く会いました。焼き魚料理も食感がとても良かったです。

Kumamoto Areas

around-area-map

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
