Edo Christian Pilgrimage 5th May 2014

On the 5th the novitiate made an Edo Christian Pilgrimage. It rained occasionally but didn’t hinder out walk, instead made it cooler.

We began from the Asakusa Station and made our way to the Asakusa Catholic church. We couldn’t enter the Jishi Park which was the site of the Tenmacho prison because it was under construction. However, we were extremely surprised and shocked to hear that some 1,700 prisoners had been executed here.

In addition we visited Fudanotsuji and the Takanawa Catholic Church where there is an underground crypt for the Edo martyrs together with a museum.
