Xavier Phonebox

I've written about Francis Xavier before. He's the Jesuit priest that brought Christianity to Japan. He landed first in Kagoshima, and there's a church dedicated to him near my apartment. Interestingly, this is the only themed phone booth I've seen in Kagoshima so far, located across the street from the church.

The phone booth is next to Xavier park, which also has a bronze statue of Xavier and 2 of his Japanese followers. I've posted pictures of it before, but this is the first night shot of it.
