Motomachi Roman Catholic Church, Hakodate

(3.9/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll overlooking the ocean and admire the colorful interior of Motomachi Roman Catholic Church, a serene place of worship founded by French missionaries. Originally built in 1877, the current-day neo-Gothic building with its towering 33 m (108 ft) white belfry dates back to 1924. Light passing through stained glass windows gives a colorful, spiritual feel to the interior, which features a magnificent altar donated by the pope. Check the schedule of this church--one of the oldest in Japan--as you can't enter during ceremonies and services.

  • A nice church in Hakodate showing its ties to the West and that more than goods were traded with the west.
  • Along the highway, easy to understand. It is nice.
