Christian Gravestone in Shirahama

(Pilgrimage to the Shimabara Peninsula)

Several Christian gravestones were discovered in a pine grove on
sand hill along Shirahama Coast in Kuchinotu, once a bustling
European trading port and center for Christian missionary work.
Today, a semi-cylindrical gravestone bearing an engraved cross with
a floral motif can be found on the site.
