St. Francis Xavier Memorial Church平戸ザビエル記念教会

Church

After the prohibition n Christianity was lifted, Christians came to live in Hirado. This church was built in 1931. In 1971, a statue of Saint Francis Xavier was erected in honor of the church’s 40th anniversary. Thereafter, the church came to be known as St. Francis Xavier Memorial Church. Now called Hirado Xavier Memorial Church, the emerald walls of the building create a beautiful sight.

          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.
