Along the main street of Tsuwano Town where all other buildings are of traditional Japanese style, you’ll find this small Tsuwano Catholic Church in a very traditional Western Gothic style. This unusual presence of a Christian church in Tsuwano came from a sad history of...More

Quite the rarity to find such a church in small rural part of Japan. Even more surprising is its interior. It's a perfect example of east meets west, where the you can find the usual Catholic church setup, but with traditional tatami mats for flooring....More
