INTRODUCTIONAbout Miki Sawada Memorial Museum

Miki Sawada Memorial Museum was established to succeed Miki Sawada's lifetime will.
The idea of this building's design comes from Noah's Ark.
There are an exhibition room on the first floor and a chapel on the second floor.
We store 874 items of hidden Christians' relics and things related to them which were collected by Miki Sawada for over 40 years since 1936 (Showa 11).
One third of those items is on display.
