Hoki Church宝亀教会

Church

This church located in Hoki-cho, Hirado City was built in 1898. Built by carpenters for temple and shrine construction on Ukujima Island who had been baptized, it has various architectural features such as a structure combining wooden tile roofing with brick. It is a prefecturally-designated tangible cultural property for its valuable construction that shows the history of faith in the area and the history of church architecture that moved from wood to brick.

Reviewed:2018/10/09 可愛い色使いの教会
ピンクと白、内部はエメラルドグリーンの可愛い教会でした。
こちらの教会は内部も祭壇近くまで見学ができ
小古曽かな雰囲気を味わえました。
狭い坂道を車で登って行く間、
対向車が来たらどうしようとドキドキしました。
駐車場は結構広いので大丈夫です。

一方通行じゃないのが不思議な道なので、気をつけて運転しましょう。教会の中にメモ帳・手ぬぐいなどが無人販売されています。予約せずに見学出来ます。

平戸の教会を訪ねるのに道路事情を訴える気はない。それがこの土地柄だからだ。が、ここは大変だ。幹線道路から脇道にそれて教会に向かうのだが、途中、絶対にすれ違えない道が細々と続く。かろうじてすれ違いゾーンが設けてあるのだが、よっぽど深慮遠謀が必要だ。教会は農村地帯の素朴さが漂う。正面に掲げられた天主堂という漢字がなかなかレトロ。建物横のテラスが特徴だ。

          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.
