The oldest church in Okayama prefecture: Takahashi Christian Church

Takahashi Christian Church built in 1889 is the oldest remaining church in Okayama prefecture. This church is very valuable not only because you can learn the history of missionary work but also the wooden Western architecture in late 1800s.
