﨑津集落

Description
It is a village registered as a World Heritage Site, and was a town of "Kirishitan" (a Japanese catholic movement). Amakusa Shiro, the 16 year old supreme leader of the movement, led 40,000 oppressed Christians into battle, fighting the Tokugawa Shogunate in the "battle of Shimabara", which took place here. Even after the defeat of the Christian army, in Sakitsu, many Christians continued their faith in secret, whilst pretending to be buddhists on the outside.
