3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

I visited in December 2012. I had been working in Tokyo for awhile and decided to go here for Sunday morning mass. The building itself is very nice inside and outside, and for the mass they had a booklet in English, although it was in Japanese and difficult to understand what was going on sometimes.

Built in 1964 and designed by Kenzo Tange, it features a column-less interior. Many weddings take place here and offer a colourful spectacle with the groom and bride, and most of the guests, in traditional ceremony clothes. And there's an organ recital once a month.

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
