Travel Guide - Hakodate Russian Orthodox Church

InformationInformation

Hakodate Russian Orthodox Church is the oldest Eastern Orthodox Church in Japan, established in 1859 by the Russian Orthodox priest Nikolai Kasatkin, St. Nicholas of Japan. The church had been the center of the Orthodox Church in Japan until Nicholai-do (Holy Resurrection Cathedral) was established in Tokyo in 1891.
The present sublime Bizantine-style church was reconstructed on the site in 1916 after the original building was destroyed by fire. The building was designated as a national important cultural property in 1983.

@DBirich I’m very fond of Hakodate. I also enjoyed visiting the Russian Orthodox Church there. I have a painting of it on my wall.
