Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Got is a city in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. It comprises the south-west half of the Got Islands in the East China Sea, some 100 kilometers from Nagasaki. The city consists of 11 inhabited and 52 uninhabited islands. The three main islands of the city are Fukue, Hisaka, and Naru. The area now comprising Got city was a port of call on the trade route between Japan and Tang Dynasty China in the Nara period. Noted Buddhist prelate Kukai stopped at Got in 806. The islands came under the control of the Got clan from the Muromachi period and was the location of intense European missionary activity in the late 16th century, which converted most of the population to the Kirishitan faith.show more
