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.

  • Is the pretty Church of Hakodate symbols can be said very picturesque appearance. Flows through the quiet, solemn hymns and inside and outside the differance. Forcing but seems not pays 200 yen admission fee. Assigned the building maintenance costs as it is. Chairs arranged in the room there is only only one sitting there looking wall in front of religious paintings and I get tired wonder what it seems something is washed. From being healed by the paintings in this church and hymn up hill and down to explore, so also is just good location within walking distance to even think it.

  • Nice pop, opened churches after 16.00 (open 10.00-16.00) specially for us. The entire parish is only 500 of the faithful, but the Church is nicely situated.

  • Very nice hotel and the breakfast is so good
  • Picturesque Russian orthodox church
  • It is the Cathedral of the Orthodox Church was built in 0/1860 Japan's first. The sound of bells is "Japan sound landscape one". You may live in Hakodate elementary school and came here at school sketching competition. You may come to the chapel. This is an image of the relatively gentle sightseeing and photography, will allow out of Church. You can get to the Church at 200 yen. Come listen to those interested would hear the bells be predetermined, 10 in the Sunday Times, timing is not so official site mp3.
