The Feast of the Japanese Martyrs

597.43 kilometers.

That's 371.23 miles.

That is how far it is to walk from Kyoto to Nagasaki.

It is 562.48 kilometers from Osaka to Nagasaki. 

Imagine walking on unpaved road.

In winter.

With average precipitation of about ninety millimeters and with temperatures reaching no more than ten degrees Celsius

Imagine at the end of this journey being crucified because you loved Jesus so much.

Imagine not regretting it.

They didn't.

Saint Paul Miki's words
