Japan flag. Places of Worship: Holy Resurrection Cathedral (ニコライ堂)

Holy Resurrection Cathedral, Nikolai-do ニコライ堂

Nikolai-do, Tokyo.

The Holy Resurrection Cathedral - usually known as Nikolai-do, in the Kanda area of Tokyo - is the major cathedral of the Japanese Orthodox Church.

The present church dates from 1929 as the previous building (first built in 1891) was partially destroyed by the tremors and a later fire in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923.

The present Byzantine-style building with its characteristic green onion domes was designed by the Japanese architect Shinito Okada.

The cathedral is commonly known as Nikolai-do after Saint Nicholas, who came to Hakodate in Hokkaido in 1860 and spent the rest of his life, including the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905) spreading Orthodox Christianity in Japan and raising funds for the cathedral until his death in 1911.

Saint Nicholas is buried in Yanaka Cemetery.
