Hirosaki Church, United Church of Christ in Japan

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 wasnt possible. However, from the outside it was quite impressive a facade.
