Go off the Beaten Track on Kashiragashima Island

Shinkamigoto’s Kashiragashima is a small island off the northeast tip of Shinkamigoto, home to a small village and an airstrip, and linked to Nakadori Island by a bridge. The village church was built by the formerly clandestine Christian community resettled from elsewhere in the island chain; the sandstone was quarried from the island itself to replace the wooden chapel built shortly after Christians could once again emerge from the shadows; and it has been included with other Goto Island churches as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The rugged, mostly untouched landscape of this rocky islet is truly unique.
