#576: Sagashima Church (category: church)
Sagashima Church is a Catholic church in Sagashima Island, belonging to Goto Islands (refer to #514). This island with two volcanoes was a place where some politically important persons were exiled by ancient government.
Hidden Christians moved from Kyushu Island (refer to #063) to this island at around the end of 18th century. Currently, priests of Miiraku Church (refer to #574) visit Sagashima Church twice a month to hold a mass.
