  • 1120views

Akabae Church stands on the side of a steep-sloped mountain, overlooking the Goto Sea. In the 1870s, Akabae was a christian village of only a few households, but was home to the missionaries Osera Sogoro, Akabae Sukesaku, and Akabae Kita who were active in the surrounding Christian villages. The current Akabae also only has a few households, but the church remains an important place of prayer for its followers.

Churches are very important places of prayer for their followers. When observing churches, please follow proper etiquette such that everyone can feel comfortable in the churches. A guide for church etiquette can be found here.
