Unzen Jigoku

Unzen Jigoku

Unzen Jigoku with the smell of sulphur and steam clouds is a place which was the stage for Christian martyrdom.
There are at least 30 Jigokus (Hells) such as Daikyokan, Oito, Seisichi, and now, just as in the past, pure white steam billows out of fumaroles.

This castle was completed after 7 long years in 1624 (the 1st year of the Kanei Era) by the domain lord, Shigemasa Matsukura. Shimabara Castle was also the stage for “Shimabara Rebellion”, the insurgence by the largest-scale Christian uprising in Japanese history which occurred at the beginning of the Edo Period. In the interior of the castle tower, there is a Christian museum that displays the Christian and Western cultures that were florid at the time.
