竹田市に数多く残るキリシタンゆかりの遺物。 その中でもキリシタン洞窟礼拝堂は象徴的です。 毎年11月20日頃に開催される「竹楽」では幻想的な姿が楽しめます。 There are many Chistianity remains in Taketa(Oita Prefecture)  In about 1550, Chistianity flourished and even during the period of Chiristian repression, Christians worshiped secretively. When you came The Chikuraku(Taketa Bamboo Lantern Festival) ,you can enjoy fantastic scenery.

It is said that Taketa once had a large Christian population in the medieval times. Then Christianity was banned by the Tokugawa Shogunate so Taketa Christians had to dig this kind of cave chapel. The question is; why right behind a Samurai street? Samurais were those who suppressed them at that time! The mystery remains unanswered.....
