Funakakushi Church

A church which was miraculously constructed even through several natural disasters

  • 467views

This church sits at the end of an inlet which opens up to the Goto Sea. In 1927, the first generation church was established in a purchased private house, but due to dilapidation and the post-WW2 population increase, construction of a new church, the current Funakakushi Church, began in 1952. Despite landslides and typhoons impeding its construction, it was completed in 1956.

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.
