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.

Day 1   Sotome & Nagasaki

 

Sotome is a rural, coastal area on the peninsula north of central Nagasaki. During the ban on

Nagasaki is a sacred place of Christianity where Pope and Saint Mother Teresa officially visited.
