Chapter 1 - Light and Shadow: Christian History, Resurrected. Japanese Medieval Kingdom "Arima"

About Chapter 1

In the Middle Ages of Japan, the kingdom “Arima” was linked to Europe.  They gained power and brought wealth to their town through “Nanban Trade” (trading with Spain and Portugal) and support from the Society of Jesus.

"Students of the seminary would sing hymns with an organ accompaniment as they walked down a beautifully embellished street." ...You can take a little peek at Arima's beautiful scenery at that time through The Jesuit Annual Report.
