Church
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.

  • The Church is located on nearby Yawata slope. It is feeling better familiar with the views of the Hill of Hakodate but is small. While you watched is time on the Sunday morning, was participating in a mass. Got anything and may have trouble don't want I wish I was holding back. Choose a day during a visit now?
