Hoki Church

Hoki Church is situated on the hillside of Hoki village with great views looking out over the coastline and islands.

It is interesting architecturally as the foundations are stone, the facade is made of red brick, the walls are wooden, and the roof is tile.

Like all the churches on Hirado, entrance is free.

It is the oldest church on Hirado Island, being built in 1898 to replace an earlier temporary church.

  3. Wow...your blog is absolutely amazing. The photography is breathtaking! I will definitely visit again. I am sort of obsessed with Japanese culture and secretly wish I were Japanese. :)
