Genna Christian Heritage

Add to MyRoute
Translated from Japanese by

Next to a large rock are a plaque and a monument to the Genna Christians. It was at this site that Iemitsu Tokugawa, the third Edo shogun, had 50 Christians executed in 1623, and where more Christians were executed 15 years later. It was the setting for Shusaku Endo's short story, "Fuda No Tsuji", centered around the monk "Nezumi" (rat) and a protagonist referred to as "Otoko" (man).
