#581: Hamakushi Church (category: church)
Hamakushi Church is a Catholic church in Nakadohri Island. Hidden Christians escaped from religious persecution in Kyushu Island (refer to #063) and moved to this island in around 1815.
The Christians constructed the first church in 1899, which became too old for decades. Then, the current church was newly built at another location near the shore in 1967.
