The Christian gravestones of Ideguchi
( Pilgrimage to the Shimabara Peninsula )
Both of these tombstones were built of local Anzai rocks (six flat types, two types of Hiraian), which should originally be hidden monuments, but as standing monuments, they are enshrined by local people, they are neglected . That is why we gathered up for maintenance.
In the prefecture’s Christian tombstone, Hiragana is used for the first time in all stone statements.
Kanji’s handwriting is also very rare.
There are also a number of things that can confirm the age and inscription, in particular the name of the baptister’s baptism, name, name of deceased month is engraved is a precious tombstone as a cultural property.
