Hakodate Orthodox Church, Hakodate
(3.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
The Holy Resurrection Church of Hakodate, or Hakodate Orthodox Church, is Japan’s oldest Russian-style Orthodox Church, featuring a modernized Byzantine exterior. Founded in 1859 by the Russian consulate and consecrated by the future St. Nicholas of Japan, the church stands as a testimony to Russo-Japanese political and trade ties during the 19th century. Built on Hachiman-zaka slope near Motomachi Park, the church offers a great view of Hakodate city. Locals nicknamed the church a “ding-dong temple” after the sound of its bells. You cannot enter when church services are in progress. See Hakodate Orthodox Church and all Hakodate has to offer by arranging your trip with our Hakodate vacation trip planner.

  • 元町教堂群入面最鍾意既詭係東正教教堂 雖然都係普通既教堂外觀 但係個人覺得呢間係元町最靚既 對教堂興趣不大都推薦黎影下相散下步 感受下寧靜既氣紛 
  • The original is a lovely Church is one of the buildings in the town. Hakodate attractions are built as well as easy-to-understand signs since studying so good.

  •  Hakodate is one of the lovely Church in town, more than 100 years of history. Inside the Church at the splendor of the stylish appearance and then I entered this had flowed a solemn air, such as the church history and tradition. Hearts seem to be pure. It is one of the places worth a visit are of Hakodate tourism.
