Kiri Church

Kiri Church is a Catholic church in Nakadohri Island, along with Nakanoura Church (refer to #579). It stands on a hill overlooking Wakamatsu Seto, the strait between Nakadohri and Wakamatsu Islands.

Kiri Church was first built in 1897 and restored in 1958. Its figure is reflected beautifully on the surface of water. So, along with Nakanoura Church, it is known as "Church of Mizu-kagami".
