Feel the echoes of the East Roman Empire at Holy Resurrection Cathedral, the main cathedral of the Japanese Orthodox Church. The cathedral's impressive Byzantine-style facade, which contrasts sharply with the modern buildings surrounding it, features a 38 m (125 ft) high dome and has a number of beautifully painted icons inside. Completed in 1891, and dedicated to St. Nicholas of Japan, the site is popularly known as the "Nikolai Cathedral," testifying to good Japanese-Russian relations in the fin-de-siecle period. You can buy souvenirs, such as postcards, brochures, or CDs with Russian religious chants at the cathedral, but you can't take photos inside. Holy Resurrection Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Beautiful Orthodox Church located near the JR station. The exterior of the church is magnificent. You need to pay/ donate 300 yen to go inside
  • Absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing Orthodox Christian church, located in a nice, peaceful area. The priests and the staff of the church are always available, always kind and helpful to everyone. I absolutely recommend a visit to this unique place for an alternative view on Japan's architecture, art and spirituality.
