The cross stretched into the sky

Celtic cross and clouds

There was a church near the castle. And a cross was attached on the top of the spire. Many could were floating above the church and the cross was profiled by the clouds.

The cross was a Celtic cross. And I thought it was uncommon in Japan. And the Ryukyuu dynasty didn't believed in Christianity. I wondered to which confession the church belonged. The Okinawa islands were occupied by USA after WWII until 1972. So this church might be built during the US rule.
