Main | Purpose | Historical Overview | Photos | Transcripts
The purpose of this site is to provide a visual record of our studies of Kakure Kirishitan (Hidden Christians) in Japan. The site will display the photographs of artifacts, places, and people that put Kakure Kirishitans into a historical context of Christianity in Japan. The bulk of the photographs will be from historical sites in Nagasaki, Shimabara, the Goto Islands, Ikitsuki Island and other places within Kyushu. The rest will be from Yamaguchi, Tsuwano, and Tenri University.
The photos give a visual record of our studies and help supplement the research of the other student fellows. In hopes of sparking more interest in our project, the photographs will provide brief information on the subject’s significance, date, location, and explanation of the unique aspects.
