Nagasaki | Fukue Island

Driving around Fukue Island: hidden churches and stunning beaches

Goto is an archipelago of 140 islands in the East China Sea, part of Nagasaki Prefecture. Blessed with stunningly blue seas and lush vegetation, these islands are widely known for Kakure Kirishitan (hidden Christians), people that had gone into hiding in these lands to avoid being persecuted by the shogunates for their beliefs. Fukue Island is the largest of the five main islands of the archipelago.
