REMAINS OF FUNAMORI VILLAGE
Located on the south end of the island, on the steep hill facing the sea, Funamori was once home to devout Christians. Today, only the stone walls of the terraced hills remain, reminding us of the humble and faithful life led by former inhabitants of the village. The historical trail leading to Funamori lies inside the deciduous forest, making it a pleasant and rewarding walk.
In 2018, “Remains of Villages on Nozaki Island” was listed as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Nozaki is also a part of the Important Cultural Landscape of the Ojika Islands, selected in 2011 by the Japanese government.
-The paths leading to Funamori village is overgrown, covered in unstable rocks. There are no direction signboards on the way, and it's easy to get lost inside the forest. Please refrain from going to Funamori without a guide.
