Nikolai Cathedral information
This Russian Orthodox cathedral is named for St Nikolai of Japan (1836-1912), who first arrived as chaplain of the Russian consulate in the port city of Hakodate (Hokkaidō) and through missionary work soon amassed about 30,000 faithful. The Tokyo building, complete with a distinctive onion dome, was first constructed in 1891. The original copper dome was, like parts of so many grand buildings, damaged in the 1923 earthquake, forcing the church to downsize to the (still enormous) dome that’s now in place. If you’re interested in attending worship services, enquire inside for times.
