The Hirado’s Island to the Southwest of Japan preserves important historical artifacts that testify the ancient dialogue between the East and the West begun in the second half of the sixteenth century. These early contacts are evidence of an important feedback of the anti-Christian policy implemented in the late sixteenth century and active throughout the Edo period until 1867 with the return of Emperor Meiji. The authors of this paper aim at describing and illustrating this important historical value stored at Hirado with the purpose of giving greater prestige to the cultural landscape, its traditions and vocations of the place for a sustainable tourism, also in relation to the nomination of World Heritage of Humanity.
