The highlight is the cathedral’s iconostasis inlayed with 30 icons made in the era of the Russian Empire. However, to see it one must arrange in advance.

    Kyoto Miyazu-shi Miyamoto
    This catholic church was built in 1896 by the French priest Jean Louis Relave. The Romanesque church blends elements of Western and Japanese architecture such as a French-style exterior and an interior with Japanese tatami mat flooring and Parisian stained glass. The beautiful church is an excellent example of mid-Meiji architecture. It is closed to visitors during mass.

    Kyoto Muko-shi Kaidecho Yamahata 25

    大極殿公園から程近い場所に立つ日本基督教団の教会です。外観からすると教会風でも無く、何か公的施設風の建物となっていました。入口傍の銘版によると幼稚園併設の教会との事でこちらの建物の方が目立つような感じでした。

Kyoto Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
