Church

The Kyoto Eastern Orthodox Church is located in a quiet residential area coming out of Yanaginobanba-dori Street from Oike-dori Street. As the center for the propagation of the Greek Orthodox Church across western Japan it was completed in 1903 and as a genuine Russian / Byzantine construction church it is has been designated one of Kyoto’s Important Cultural Properties. 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.

周りにはマンション等が立並び、やや窮屈な場所に建つ教会です。中心となるのが、"生神女福音聖堂" と呼ばれるビザンチン様式の聖堂で、京都市指定有形文化財となっているようでした。聖堂内は写真撮影禁止となっている上、訪問当日は、礼拝が行われており外観だけ眺めて終えました。

          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.
