Oura Catholic Church

Oldest existing church in Japan.
As you know, Japan’s traditional religion is Shinto and Buddhism.
Christianity came to Japan in 1549 and then spread.
But the government prohibit Christianity.
This church was built for foreigners.
There are a lot of historical stories, not only as structural but also political.
It is interesting.
