The Holy Resurrection Church of Hakodate, or Hakodate Orthodox Church, is Japan’s oldest Russian-style Orthodox Church, featuring a modernized Byzantine exterior. Founded in 1859 by the Russian consulate and consecrated by the future St. Nicholas of Japan, the church stands as a testimony to Russo-Japanese political and trade ties during the 19th century. Built on Hachiman-zaka slope near Motomachi Park, the church offers a great view of Hakodate city. Locals nicknamed the church a “ding-dong temple” after the sound of its bells. You cannot enter when church services are in progress. Put Hakodate Orthodox Church and other Hakodate attractions into our Hakodate online travel planner , and watch your holiday take shape.
Hakodate Orthodox Church Reviews
上品な建物です。 高台でさえぎるものがなく、澄んだ空気の中のんびりお散歩しました 平日なので静かでよかったです 中にも入れますが靴を脱がなければなりません more »It is a classy building. There is nothing to be able to get even on the hill, and I took a leisurely walk in the clear air. It was quiet because it was a weekday, so I put it inside, but I have to take off my shoes.

Anyone can get inside! It is free to visit, but the inside of the basilica is a space of sacred air, and the holy obstacle in front of it is a space of a profound feeling⛪️ so anyone can sit and pray at the entrance of the basilica. Tourists were also able to see this⛪️ church, which is built in the Russian Byzantine style ♂️. Large-scale restoration work has been carried out, and the vividness is firmly passed on to posterity.
Not a big fan of churches.. So was not impressed but the surrounding area is tranquil and green... Still worth a visit if u have nowhere to go
A nice but small church located at high ground. Great views...
