I do not understand the difference of the church and the Lord of Heaven temple.
But, it may not be so important.
This building was built in 1918 by settlers from the other places.
Father French propagator "Lage" and "Doro" let believers emigrate at own expense.
It is registered with the important cultural property of the country.
On January 23, 2007, addition to the world heritage provisional list was decided as one of "the church group and Christianity of Nagasaki-related inheritances".
Here is Hirado-shi, Nagasaki Prefecture.
It is a hill facing the sea in the distance, and the remote place that left the town far away.
The gravestone is south direction in the custom of the Far East.
However, all these gravestones are west directions.
Yes, there are Spain and Portugal, Europe in the direction.
They always look at the west, and sleep.
It is the Far West...

When visitors come to a land not of their own ... it saddens me that they do not respect the customs and architecture of that country. I do love the colors in your first photo. CarolReplyDelete

Hi Ruma..I'm not sure but whether its a temple or shrine or church with a steeple, seems we will always see them pop up some where! Interesting photos here anyway (I like the one of the graves too). Regina-ReplyDelete

Mistério de luz,
inunda nosso espírito em ternuras
e modifica nosso modo de agir.
Transforma nosso egoísmo
em ações concretas.
Jesus é esperança
e nos traz paz e felicidade.
Ensina o caminho
e anuncia a salvação.
Linney Jeanne Palma
Desejo a você e sua Família,
um feliz Natal, e muita paz, imbuído do verdadeiro sentimento de
solidariedade e amor.
Abraços com todo meu carinho
