“A good walk from Mt. Hakodate rope-way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We didn't plan to stop by, but decided to take a walk from the rope-way station. It was very close and we visited around 9pm after enjoying the night view of Hakodate city from the mountain.
The small, white church was beautifully lit up- it was a bit dessert area, and would have been a bit scary if alone, but saw a few night-time visitors there. The building was closed so we were not able to go inside though.
The neighborhood was very quaint and charming - definitely nice to stop by if you go up to the mountain via Rope-way.

“A landmark of Hakodate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

One proof that Hakodate is a melting pot. Classical Russian design, in an old street lined up with other churches, leading to Mt. Hakodate

“Typical Russian architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012 via mobile

Classic Russian architecture in Japan. Goo to take a look and it's still functioning as a church today.
