Beautiful architecture built in 1860, this is accessible from the Daikan Zaka slope. This church was originally built as a chapel attached to the first Russian Consulate. The original church was destroyed by the Great Fire of Hakodate in 1907 and rebuilt in 1916.

A short visit will do. The exterior is nothing special. I was unable to enter thus can't comment much.

High on a hill overlooking Hakodate, this simple but stylish church harks back to the international (Russian) settlement of this city. Built at the turn of the 20th century, it has the typical 'onion' domes o the main structure. Inside is a bit more elaborate with its icon festooned alter and walls. Walk up the Daisan-Zaka to the church where you will see western style architecture (mainly homes) also dating back to western settlement from 19th century. Bit of a hike so you need a to be a bit fit. Lovely views and other churches to explore up there as well including an imposing Buddhist temple.

Situated in the historical building district right next door to the modern St John's Church. Beautiful church especially in the snow which is how we viewed it. As it was Christmas time the church was playing carols which added to the magic.
