Otome Toge Maria Seido乙女峠マリア聖堂

Church

This is a small Christian church, built in the land of Christian martyrdom Otome Pass. In the first year of the Meiji era (1868) when Christianity was forbidden, 153 Christians from Nagasaki Urakami were imprisoned in Korin Temple at Otome Pass. Following cruel torturing to renounce their religion, 36 martyrs had emerged by 1870, and it is said that the Virgin Mary descended to give encouragement to her believers. The eight stained glass windows in the church show the state of martyrdom at the time. A special mass is held on May 3rd as part of the “Otome Pass Festival” to remember these martyrs.

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
