3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Feel the echoes of the East Roman Empire at Holy Resurrection Cathedral, the main cathedral of the Japanese Orthodox Church. The cathedral's impressive Byzantine-style facade, which contrasts sharply with the modern buildings surrounding it, features a 38 m (125 ft) high dome and has a number of beautifully painted icons inside. Completed in 1891, and dedicated to St. Nicholas of Japan, the site is popularly known as the "Nikolai Cathedral," testifying to good Japanese-Russian relations in the fin-de-siecle period. You can buy souvenirs, such as postcards, brochures, or CDs with Russian religious chants at the cathedral, but you can't take photos inside. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Tokyo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Holy Resurrection Cathedral and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Boring, if you want to see cathedrals you chose the wrong continent
  • Nice architecture. Nothing much to see inside.
  • Nicholas Hall of important cultural asset. It is a church can feel the atmosphere of Russia. From the day you can see the internal pay 300 yen for a short time, but. However, I think better before us because sometimes I can't see at wedding receptions. Inside are hung pictures, was a warm and friendly atmosphere. 2011-10-first visit 12/2013 18, re-visited
