Nagasaki Pilgrimage one-day tour

Where to visit : Pilgrimage sites in Sotome and Nagasaki-city

Christian history in Japan was started when St. Francis Xavier came to Japan as a first Christian

missionary in 1549. Then Christianity was spread in Nagasaki region. However, unparalleled

hidden Cristian history was started from when Toyotomi Hideyoshi Shogunate proclaimed Christian

ban in 1587. During ban on Christianity, people secretly continued to faith while surviving in the

midst of the conventional society and Japanese religions.

Since ban on the Christianity was lifted in 1873, new Christian history in Japan has begun.

and the Battle field of Shimabara Rebellion which was a peasant uprising agaist bakufu’s

persecution of Christians under the leadership of Amakusa Shiro in 1637.


 

It was founded by Arima Takazumi in 1496 and was a flat castle with a fortress naturally created

both by the cliff facing Ariake Sea and the tide coming in. This Castle was abandoned since

Matsudaira. 


 
Shigemasa, the load of Shimabara, built Shimabara Castle after the rupture of Arima family ties. 
Christian farmers rose in a riot due to their grievance about the oppression by Matsukura 
Shigemasa. The Shogunate regarded this riot as Christian rebellion and sent its punitive force,
therefore locked themselves in the castle and with their leader Amakusa Shiro Tokisada fought
against the Shogunate.


 

On February 27, 1638, he died in battle. The following day, the castle fell. 37,000 Christians

including women and children died a violent death. It is registered on the UNESCO World

Heritage as Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region in 2018.

Jigoku, means Hell, is the number one attraction of Unzen with a peculiar smell of sulfur emitted

from the springs, and with white smoke rising from the ground over a wide area. This is a striking

reminder that Unzen Volcano is still very much alive.


 

These springs are highly valued by Japanese even now as according to Buddhist teaching,  “If you

live in a bad manner, you cannot go to Paradise, but rather, you will fall into the Hell of agony”.


 

Unfortunately, this was once put into reality nearly 350 years ago during the time of religious

persecution in Japan.  30 Japanese Christians, failing to renounce their faith met  their death

here in the scalding spring of Jigoku.
