The full name of this small church is "Motomachi Roman Catholic Church", a symbol of the revival of Christianity after years of suppression in Japan. Although it is a Gothic style building, it is different from many dark Gothic churches in Europe. It has a red roof and pale green spire, which is small and fresh. The decoration inside is also very simple, there is no sense of luxury, and it can purify the soul. Except for Saturday and Sunday mornings, you can visit inside the rest of the time.
