Nakanoura Church

Nakanoura Church is a Catholic church in Goto Islands (refer to #514). This wooden church, which was complete in 1925, is standing beside an inlet of Nakadohri Island.

Nakanoura Church is also known as "Church of Mizu-kagami". The word "mizu-kagami" literally means "water mirror". As the name indicates, the church is reflected beautifully on the surface of water.
