Kuroshima Catholic Church

  • Historic Sites

It is a splendid church of the Romanes style on Kuroshima Island.

The church was built by the believers who contributed money and labor, all the bricks, pillars and tiles on the floor

are made of Arita yaki and look so attractive.

People may feel the strength of human being’s belief through the history of this church building

that was constructed by the inhabitants one by one.

Kuroshima Island is the outstretched island of the Kujukyushima Islands,

so tourists come here not only to see the church but also the ancient life style of Japan and the nature,

and the inhabitants’ simple belief.
