“Worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

You pass this as part of your Motomachi area walkabout and you will know it by the distinctive green copper domes representative of many Russian churches. Apparently locally it is also known as the Ding Dong church because of the sound of its bell. Take you shoes off to go inside and see a really ornate alter and listen to piped choral music

“A nice picture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Nice little church. Worth a couple of photos as you walk around the historic part of town. You can go inside as well.

“Unexpected gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

A real atmospheric architectural delight one would really not expect to see in japan. Inside the icons are beautiful but there wasn't any information in English which is a shame. Nevertheless don't miss this . 200 yen to get in.

“A church with lovely view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

Located on the top of the hill. You walk and could enjoy the lovely view of Hagodate. The slope walk is lovely and the church itself is not big but good size. We don't like the hospitality of the two old ladies work at church that are rude compare to other places we visit.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

An awesome and great one. On my way walking up to it... it started to snow, just a bit, but it feels so cool. There's also red leaves, sort of like flying around... due to the strong wind. Seems so dramatic, with the snow & red leaves.....
