Japan: Nokubi church

The sole remaining church on Nozaki island is located in the former Nokubi village. The small red brick church stands atop a hill, watching over the remains of the settlement. Together with Funamori in the south, Nokubi was once home to devout Christians. The parishioners, 17 families in all, willingly embraced hardships and came together to raise funds for the construction of the church that would carry their legacy for generations.


Thanks to Ms Chinami. She has used a 1982 stamp on Japan China Relation. The stamp shows UNESCO world heritage site, Temple of Heaven, China.
