The preparations in the next season

Small Tanada reclamationed by the seashore side.
Here is Hirado-shi (Hirado-Island), Nagasaki Prefecture.

Hirado-shi is famous for the passing away Christian (Kakure Kirishitan) of the Edo era.  It is a place related to Francisco de Xavier deeply.

The rice after having harvested it is drawn off to keep it.
This is already threshed.

There are a lot of beautiful church and remains of the Christian such a mountainous district and isolated islands.

An original keeping way is still left in this area.

They Christian still does life to respect tradition.

This work to perform in an inconvenient area needs very severe labor. This straw becomes the manure of the next year.

Francisco de Xavier propagated Christianity for the first time in 1549 at the Far East. Nagasaki has a great many Christians.
Almost anyone knows him in this country, even if don't know the name of the prime minister and not a Christian. It may be his influence that Spain and Portugal are very popular in the Far East.
