I attended Saturday evening mass and it was held in the crypt chapel in the basement. The main cathedral was under renovation. After reading what the other reviewers wrote, I hope to visit the main cathedral itself in future after the rework. In the meantime,...More

Cathedral not a must see, does have significance to it being one of the largest in Asia, but seeing cathedrals around the world this is very underwhelming its about a 10 minutes walk from centre of Hiroshima.

The church is one of the largest in Asia. The cathedral documents Christianity in Japan - Hiroshima and Nagasaki having the largest Christian populations in Japan in 1945. It's currently be restored.

The cathedral is currently under renovations ( sept 2017). As this is one of the largest cathedrals in asia, it's worth a visit to experience the unique Asian version of Christianity. The building is dull enough with stunning aspects to make you ask why it's...More

Tried going there for 7.30 am mass but it was under renovation. There was mass in Japanese when we got there, but from the poster, mass in English is only available at 2.30 pm.

This huge cathedral (one of the largest Catholic churches in Asia) is worth visiting for its profound meaning, rather than its looks - which is bare and downright ugly! Father Hugo Lassalle was a German priest working at a church where the cathedral now stands,...More

When I take school groups to Hiroshima we always go to Mass here - we are always warmly welcomed. Well worth the visit if you have the time to look inside - a fairly easy walk from Hiroshima Station.
