Rose Garden Christ Church

In the City of Sapporo, on the hills of Fushimi,
where one of the most breathtaking panorama views of the cityspreads out to be admired,
a Church was built, overlooking time and space.

Rose Garden Christ Church was born as a real Protestant church. Unlike chapels that are only for commercial use,this Church has a full-time and fully ordained Pastor.
On the land of 2500 tsubo embraced by the magnificent Mt. Moiwa Mountains, the church was built in a traditional European setting, where the flowers of the four seasons are in full bloom. The beautiful cityscape of Sapporo and the glittering island of Ishikari spreads before your eyes.
Rose Garden Christ Church is filled with a lot of commitment.
We believe & hope that this Church, just like the churches in Europe, will remain, unchanging, so that the faith and couple’s love will not fade over time. That is the symbol the Church wants to portray.

Birth of Rose Garden Christ Church

Rose Garden Christ Church’s architectural design was born of Ms. Daniela Rossi, a female architect from Milan representing Italy, and Japanese architect Mr. Fuminori Hoshina who loves Hokkaido, initially built as the former Protestant church's Fushimi chapel. Supporting the Grand Chapel, where there are numerous works of art decorating the interior, most of the pillars are cobblestone stone pillars, with stone pavement around the corridors, the best building materials and supplies were brought from the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, to build something lasting. For example, even one door being used for hundreds of years, it will not be changed, and it will remain as a special presence forever.
In this land of Hokkaido, as if overlapping with the landscape of Northern Italy approaching the Alps, a sacred church bearing the thoughts of the architects and of those who adore God is born.

What is the difference between 'real church' and other churches?

In the church there is a full-time Pastor who not only officiates wedding ceremonies, but also leads believers in the faith, bible studies & worship on a daily basis.
Instead of performing an obligatory wedding ceremony, the pastor meets with the couple before the ceremony, to taylor the wedding ceremony to the Bride & Groom. To that end, wedding vows, messages and hymns for the day are shared with the couple on the day of the wedding, to start with a truly heartfelt and loving wedding ceremony.
We are not a "wedding ceremony chapel". We wait as a Church rooted in the community, for you, the couple who had a wedding ceremony here, and for believers who come on a daily basis.
Because we would like to be a church that can be used as a place to go to for guide in life. We want the two people who had a wedding ceremony here to come anytime and feel comfortable in the church again, we offer charity concerts open to the general public throughout the year. We also offer worship services that you can attend. You can also visit us on a wedding anniversary, or even be a place where your children will also have a wedding at the same church, and so their memories will continue.
