Cathedral of the Diocese of Sapporo - Kita Ichi Jo Kyokai

Kita Ichi Jo Kyokai as it is called by the locals is the official Cathedral of the Diocese of Sapporo. Compared to other cathedrals, it may be small but it has a very cozy and warm ambience. 

It was built in the late 19th and early 20th century. 

Sapporo Diocese Cathedral is near either both the subways stations ODORI or SAPPORO. 
It is right beside the SAPPORO FACTORY shopping mall.   ( This could be your landmark.) 

There is a Japanese Mass attended mostly by the locals from 9:00 - 10:00 AM every Sunday. The English Mass from 12:30 -13:30 every Sunday on the other hand is attended mainly by the
foreign nationals residing in the vicinity welcoming and sending off Catholic tourists who come to visit the region and attend mass just before flying back to their own countries. 

Different activities are held all year round such as charity bazaars, international festivals, 
musical concerts, etc. There is a bible study held every 3rd Sunday which welcomes all. 

Come and experience the warmth welcome of the Kita Ichi Jo Kyokai!
