Goto Islands


goto copy, originally uploaded by vibromama.

This year during our Spring holidays we are going to Goto Islands with our sea kayaks. We have made a very detailed digital map of the area for our GPS units, and are fully prepared with 10 days worth of food and snacks. Since the Goto Islands are in the middle of the sea the weather can be quite severe. Our actual plans will be depending on the weather.
These islands are famous for their rich Christian history. When Christianity was forbidden in Japan, a lot of Christians fled to these islands where they were safe. Still today there are over 50 churches on these islands!
During our trip we hope to visit some of these churches, meet local people, learn about the history of these islands, catch some fish, explore new territory, hike some mountains, enjoy time together and sea kayak.
