An old trail linking Nokubi and Funamori villages



Nozaki-gou, Ojika-machi, Kitamatsuura-gun, 〒857-4709

An old trail links the remains of Nokubi and Funamori villages. It is 2.8 kilometres in length and between 0.8 and 1 metre wide. It is a natural trail.
The churches in Funamori and Nokubi villages both belonged to Chuuki parish. At the time when both churches were still in use, mass would alternate between the two, and so this trail was used by Christians to attend Mass.
