Found this lovey gem while strolling around the area. Beautiful Byzantine building that transports you out of the urban sprawl of Tokyo despite still being surrounded by the same. 300 yen entrance fee is worth it especially if you have never visited a cathedral of...More

It is always interesting to see an orthodox cathedral in the middle of Tokyo, this is a nice building near the metro and easy to reach. However you must pay to enter it which makes the difference with Shinto shrines that are always free. If...More

The building was designed by Josiah Conder, a notable architect in Japan who during the Meiji era was commissioned to transform the Marunochi area into a business district. There was a time when the Cathedral overlooked the Imperial Palace. The icons inside are gorgeous.
