"Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region," registered in July of this year as World Heritage, comprise 11 locations in Nagasaki prefecture and one location in Kumamoto prefecture where the Christian faith has been passed down for centuries. We hope that this exhibition will provide an opportunity to think about the countless individuals who pursued their faith in Japan regardless of the unforgiving circumstances.
