“Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Hakodate”

Hakodate Orthodox Church
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This church is a landmark of Hakodate. Its image is used for many different things to promote tourism in Hakodate. The church has its real name "Holy Resurrection Church of Hakodate." I hope everyone learns that it is a Japanese Orthodox church, neither Russian nor Greek. It belongs to the local Japanese faithful. It's a place of worship. Of course, everyone is welcome to join the service. Saturday evening service starts at 5pm, and Sunday liturgy starts at 10am. In order to preserve and maintain the church building, visitors are expected to make some donation. It's not a fee. I hope everyone respects that it's a place where people pray quietly.

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

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

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.

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.
