Sakitsu community

Sakitsu community is one of the hidden Christian sites in Nagasaki and Amakusa and was listed on the UNESCO world heritage list in 2018. You can enjoy the streetscape which is mixed with Christian culture and Japanese traditional fishing village culture. Beautiful scenery of Japanese culture meshed with Western culture is giving us a nostalgic feeling.

Oetenshudo Church was built by Father Garnier using his own funds. He was engaged in mission work for the rest of his life. This Romanesque white church is set off against the blue sky. Taking a picture or video is prohibited inside the church.
