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.

  • By first going inside the Church had other tourists was nervous. Different religions believe in a solemn air, etc., to calm will be. Hakodate tourism should go the churches.

  • The Hakodate Orthodox church, Motomachi Catholic Church and a Buddhist temple are all about a block from each other and are easily seen on a walking tour of the former European influenced area of Hako...  more »
  • The current building was built in 1916, is famous as the buildings in Hakodate. In orthodox Russia, onion-shaped building is downright pretty. You can go inside, to attend the mass. It is a lovely Church and scenic location overlooking the Hakodate.
