I'll take you to some traditional and beautiful churches, and places of Japanese Christian heritage in Tokyo. I'll tell you about the Japanese Christians' history of persecution and how we kept the faith. This is a one-day pilgrimage, so you should wear an outfit suitable for walking. We'll have 90-minute walk in total. At the end, we will have a small welcoming party in a Japanese traditional Christian's house with your Japanese brothers and sisters. Though Japan is famous for Buddhist temples and smart technology, we Christians have our own history, traditional culture, and faith. It is well mixed with Japanese culture, so you will be amazed. You will have learned about complex Japanese religions and lifestyles by the end of this activity. No matter where we are, it's our pleasure to offer our day to God, isn't it? Are you ready for a fun pilgrimage in Tokyo? Welcome to the wonderful Japanese Christians' world.
Hello, future friends. I'm a Japanese Catholic Christian, born and raised in Tokyo. Sometimes people say, "You can't be a Christian 'cause you're Japanese." In fact, we Japanese Christians exist, though our numbers are so small. Did you know that even some samurai were Christian? Through this activity, I'd like to let people from all over the world know how we Japanese Christians live in this multicultural society. Why don't you learn about Japanese Christians' rich and interesting culture and history from a local faithful Christian? We're waiting for you.
