Catholic Hirosaki Churchカトリック弘前教会

Church

Located around five minutes’ walk to the east of Hirosaki Park, Catholic Hirosaki Church was built in 1910. It was constructed in the Romanesque style, with a spire, and with prominent pillars at the left and right corners of the front face. The oak-wood altar that faces the door at the far end of the interior was a gift from the Church of St. Thomas in Amsterdam; the altar was made in 1866, and won an award for its design at an exhibition held in Antwerp, Belgium.

Review of Hirosaki Catholic Church

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/01/01 A small Catholic Church to visit for Catholics but not a tourist sight!
This is not a tourist attraction. For devout Catholics, it may be worth a visit to find peace of mind during a long travel with a lot on one's mind! It is a small church and we had difficulty...
Reviewed:2018/11/11 소박한 아름다움이 있는 성당
히로사키 시내에 있는 이 성당은 전형적인 서양식 건축양식으로 만들어졌습니다. 신사는 흔하지만 성당이 그리 많지 않은 일본에서 만나는 이국적인 건축양식의 성당이라 더욱 이국적인 느낌이 강합니다.
규모는 작고 내부는 소박하고 간결하지만, 스테인드 글라스가 아름다워 볼 만 합니다.
Reviewed:2018/09/10 綺麗だ
大雑把にうと、カトリックは飾り立てて、プロテスタントは質素だと思えばいい。この教会はステンドグラスが素晴らしく美しい。中から、初秋の日航を浴びた弘前の風景、お岩木山の風景を見るのは、本当に心が洗われる。

Aomori Main Areas

around-area-map

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
