Review Highlights
小小的教堂

在輕井澤穿過了Church Street, 便是St. Paul Catholic Church, 教堂好細少, 外面地方亦不大, 拍了幾張照片, 教堂內沒有開放, 只從玻璃門影入內, 路經可以一看.

It is raining when we got there but the church is closed. We can't go inside but just glimpsed through the small glass window at the door. The church is quite small and not difficult to find.

You would think a church is just that, but when you are in a foreign land, ie Japan, a church becomes a sanctuary of normality, This one is small homely with very unusual architectural furniture.

Located just behind Church Street of the Ginza, this is a small but beautiful catholic church. Apparently this information is not available online but service on Sunday's is at 9am.

The church is located at a quiet side path yet just a stone throw away from the busy shopping street. The architecture is of traditional wooden roof. It is a nice place to calm you down and to meditate. However, I must state that this...More

This small church is not particularly beautiful but being in Japan, it has a special aura. It is less than a century old but is a charming place.

That's about it. It's nothing special, sad to say. It's seen better days. Not sure why it's such a major stop for people to see.

Classic architecture by Antonin Raymond! Go there when there's a mass, if not it's not open for public viewing. Very easy to find by GPS if you're driving.
