Next week is Christmas. Christmas events take place from weekend to next week.
In some places, you can touch Orthodox Christmas. Yatsugatake Chuo Kogen Christian Church in Haramura, Nagano Prefecture is one such spot.
This small church, nestled in the woods of the plateau, has a pipe organ made by members of the faithful and is a place that is loved by the community.
As a Christian church, Christmas trees are displayed during this season, and candle services and Christmas worship are held every year.
Christmas worship on December 22 this weekend. It is a special worship service to be held in time for Christmas. There is also a Christmas program for children on this day, so parents and children can participate.
Candle service on December 23. Candle service is widely used at weddings and other places, but it originally originated in Christian worship. In this candle service, the members of the Haramura Early Music Choir will be in charge of the music.
Both are important ceremonies for Christianity, but at the same time many churches are open to non-believers, and the first and non-believers in the Yatsugatake Central Highlands Christian Church are also welcomed. Why don’t you visit us for the first time but want to touch Christian Christmas?
By the way, the New Year worship will be held on January 1 at Yatsugatake Chuo Kogen Christian Church. People who spend the year-end and New Year holidays in Yatsugatake may want to join here.
