Visit Nakanoura Church, the Prettiest Chapel in the Islands

The Christians that escaped from coastal Kyushu in the wake of the persecution of Christians beginning in the 1500s found a home on these islands, where they could practice their religion in secret. Not far from what is now Narao Port, a community of Christians survived until the situation improved, and set about in the 1920s building a handsome church. The chapel, set on a picturesque cove, is still worshipped at by local people but also attracts many visitors to appreciate the floral-decorated interior and snap an iteration of the church-reflected-in-cove picture, particularly impressive when the tower is lit up during the Christmas season.
