Catholic Church in Tsuwano


Must be in the Christmas spirit to be posting all these churches :) The Catholic Church in Tsuwano was built in 1931.
It's a replica of the Oura Tenshudo, the church built by the French in Nagasaki in 1865.
Inside, no pews or chairs, only tatami to sit on.
The church is open daily. On May 3rd there is a procession from the church up to the Chapel at Otome Pass followed by a Mass in front of the church.

  1. There must be a rectory to the North side of the church which you can see through the stained glass windows in the bottom picture. A very beautiful church both inside and out. The addition of the ornamentation on the edge of the roof lends an Oriental touch to the building itself. THANK YOU!
