Tsuwano’s built heritage: Catholic church

The Catholic church and clergy house

The church and the clergy house was built in 1931, on the grounds where once the Hori Kurobei residence stood, a family from the chief’s of Tsuwano town. The building is of Gothic style, a wooden structure with gabled metal roof and a single bell tower. The building has stained glass on the south and north side. The clergy house is a 2 storey hip roofed wooden structure, clapboard/weatherboard on the outer wall, which gives it a western design. The Hori Kurobei residence’s Japanese style garden has been preserved in front of the entrance (of the clergy house)
