Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region

Egami Village on Naru Island (Egami Church and its Surroundings)

This village was established by Hidden Christians who migrated to a valley near the seacoast, isolated from the pre-existing villages, and they later built a church after the ban on Christianity was lifted. The conventional church design was adapted to take the characteristic topography of the village into account.
