Stone Church, Karuizawa-machi
(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Resembling an entrance to an underground cave complex, Stone Church features leaning stone-and-glass arches arranged like a cut-up boulder in a terrace-shaped slabs. Built in 1988 by Kendrik Kellog, a proponent of organic architecture, the church commemorates Uchimura Kanzo (1861-1930), a Christian evangelist. Inside the church, you'll see rows of long pews and a stone altar, with lower parts of the walls inside this well-lit church covered with leaves. A popular venue for wedding ceremonies, performed both in Japanese and English, the church closes for visitors during private services. Take a free shuttle bus or taxi from Karuizawa station, which takes about 15 minutes.

  • 這座教堂位於星野的飯店園區內,一般民眾可以自行前往。教堂外便非常的奇特,用一層層的拱狀岩石排列。教堂內部優美寧靜,無人的時候可以聽到流水的聲音,非常莊嚴的教堂,難怪很多新人會選擇於此舉辦婚禮。
