exploring the site of hidden Christians private tour


Amakusa is located in the southern part of Japan. Some people say it is one of the most backward regions in Japan. While this is true, it has retained something special that so-called modern societies have lost. That is the beauty of this rural area.

Amakusa is also home to "Hidden Christians". The Christians in Amakusa have passed on their beliefs from generation to generation despite harsh persecution for about 250 years.

A Professional English guide will explain the unique culture of this isolated area. After exploring Amakusa, you can have an enjoyable experience making powdered green tea at a tea shop.
