“Right by the old town”

St.Paul's Catholic Church Karuizawa
Reviewed 18 January 2016

This small church is not particularly beautiful but being in Japan, it has a special aura. It is less than a century old but is a charming place.

That's about it. It's nothing special, sad to say. It's seen better days. Not sure why it's such a major stop for people to see.

Classic architecture by Antonin Raymond! Go there when there's a mass, if not it's not open for public viewing. Very easy to find by GPS if you're driving.

When I lived in Gunma, I would travel 2 hours each Sunday to attend Mass at St. Paul's. Father Carlos Martinez, priest of the church was (and hopefully still is) a lovely, kind, inspirational man who I became great friends with. If you are in this area, please visit this simple, humble church and feel the love and goodness therein.
