Chapter 3 - The Unknown Christian Kingdom in Japan,the Light and the Darkness -Boys who journeyed to Rome

About Chapter 3

In the 16th century, four boys who studied in the seminary of Arima left for Europe. For this enormous project, what expectations and how much responsibility did they carry with them?


They were given enthusiastic welcomes in many European cities, and have accomplished great feats, such as meeting the Pope and bringing back a letterpress printing machine. However, when they came back after the voyage that took eight and a half years, Japan was unfortunately in the era of anti-Christianity.
