3.9
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. Put Hakodate Orthodox Church and other Hakodate attractions into our Hakodate online travel planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Big is marked with red roof up misaka comes into view on the right in the middle of the road. Please note that the can Interior tour also in the Church are not allowed to take. Many foreign tourists from Asia and organizations may be a little noisy. Because it is close to other churches to explore together.

  • Picturesque Russian orthodox church
  • All Word of mouth, I was surprised. Take friends of foreigners came to the Church and I went, although I do, sitting in a Chair and try to visit once in the woman to please-very nasty feeling screwed here barefoot! I think this was pushed out. The body was pressed. Lol by the way, man would I been 貼紙 to put in the donation box ¥ 200. I did not admit that many men in the Church were the donation box near the nothing. Do I have an unkind person so please-very very nasty. I'm a tourist. If you cross-esque entrance? Feeling. Is not bad because the Church says modestly, but anyway very unpleasant, the.

  • In the morning I visited. Just come for the Church, to please and, lucky us open the door! Was photo here and get a few focused on the door. But there were some people stop and look at character building within charges apply. Charges apply for visitors in the building do not look up the price by going to. I am Buddhist, religious found nowhere else but wonder if heart is calm. It was the Church that match in the city of Hakodate.

  • 17-18 years ago in the family came during a trip to Hokkaido. I remember well because I in long distance travel usually disadvantaged weather with a probability of half and half, but this time I lasted three days sunny. Orthodox Christian Greece visited during the day, but the first building had become pinned down. Degree in later years, Ochanomizu Nicholai-do to become nostalgic impression is strong from May.
