Church on Goto Islands

The Goto Islands are an archipelago of 130 separate islands to the west of Nagasaki prefecture. The islands are popular with tourists looking to explore its beautiful Christian churches, where around 50 of which still remain. During periods when Christianity was forbidden in Japan, many Japanese Christians flocked to various parts of the Goto Islands. In 1873, they were granted freedom to practice their religion. Since then, multiple churches have been built in the regions where they previously hid.

"Doors to explore 'NIPPON'", a special program that showcases scenes hand-picked from NHK's "SHIN NIHON FUDOKI", a show that conveys the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Japan, is screened on five TV monitors installed in the departure area of Haneda Airport.
