Hirosaki Church, United Church of Christ in Japan日本キリスト教団弘前教会

Church

A church built by the Hirosaki Methodist Church in 1906. Located close to Hirosaki Castle Botanical Garden, the wooden building’s gothic style architecture with two towers is an extremely rare example constructed during the Meiji period. A variety of traditional crafts were used in the decorate of the church as well. The pulpit and communion table are painted Tsugaru-nuri lacquer, and the donation baskets are traditional woven vine work. Visitors are permitted, but not when staff are not present or during church events.

Sighted in late Autumn around 4:30pm, so it was dark and entry to the church wasn't possible. However, from the outside it was quite impressive a facade.

弘前城のちょっと横。
当日は、バザーらしきイベント準備をしていました。
津軽の中心の街にキリスト教の普及の歴史が感じられました。

キャッスル・ホテルの近くにある、プロテスタント教会ですが、弘前市内でも歴史のある教会です。 礼拝中は入れませんが、牧師に許可を求めれば内部も見られるはずです。

          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.
