Hirado Kirishitan Museum平戸市切支丹資料館

3.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This is a Christian Museum in Neshiko, Hirado City. The museum exhibits historic artefacts related to Francisco Xavier and others who visited Hirado in 1550 to spread Christianity, martyrdom in the early Edo period, and the hidden Christians. The hidden Christian’s image of Mary, who was the object of religious beliefs, and fumi-e (tablets bearing Christian images, on which Edo-period authorities forced suspected Christians to stand on) are also exhibited. It is ten minutes by car from the “Himosashi” bus stop.

イメージとは異なり、見学者は我々のみ。その分、ゆっくり見学でしましたが、なぜマイナーなのか、よくわかりません。
Reviewed:2017/09/14 思ったより小さな施設でした
生月島までドライブしてきて平戸島に戻って来て立ち寄ってみました。予想していたよりも小さな資料館でした。展示は一部屋だけで、生月島の島の館に行ったあとだったので、やや残念な感じがありました。かくれキリシタンの地域なので展示資料自体は真面目なものです。

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
