‪We came during night time and therefore difficult to see much outside. I bet summer with all the greens will speak itself much better than a snowy night. The chapel has a 10-min movie to explain the background. My 8-year old daughter surprisingly seems to understand the creator’s concept of integrating nature and divinity! Regardless if you are a Christian or not, this is highly recommended to seek peace of mind. ‬

‪Went there because it’s designed by Ando Tadao and stayed at a nearby pension. Do check opening hours - suggest the 6:30-7:15 slot as not likely to have wedding ceremony. The 7-minute trail back to the resort centre is nice. ‬

‪Stunning But Peaceful - 驚訝又寧靜‬
יוני 2018 • משפחה
‪I am so amazed by the chapel’s design. You need to walk around the walls outside, enter with stunning and go alone the walls inside again before go into the chapel. I am so amazed by the architecture, lines, mix with nature & many cross symbols along the way. Right after entering the chapel through the spiral staircase, the peace & stunning come together. The concrete finish, the water, the view and the breeze really stop the time for me. I stayed at least 30 minutes inside, just tried hard to grab the peace here as they mentioned on the close your senses with strengthen your spirit.
太驚訝於水教堂的設計。循著建築區域外牆走到入口,在進口打開視覺的驚訝,再循著牆走到教堂入口,進去教堂前,就對建築、線條、與自然的融合和十字架的多個意象感到愛上了,再經過螺旋樓梯進入教堂內部,驚訝與平靜一起哇的一聲在心裡,清水模、水、景觀和微風真的讓這裡的時間停止了;我在白天和晚上都待了至少三十分鐘,去追尋那個內心的安靜,就像這個教堂說的,來這裡關起你的感官會開啟你內心的力量。‬

‪Charming but not a must‬
מרץ 2018 • זוגות
‪The chapel is rather small, with seats for about 40 persons only. The walls on three sides are made of concrete. The frontal wall is a large glass panel, outside of which is a small pond. Visitors sitting on the benches inside the chapel face a large cross rising from the water of the pond. Behind the pond is a forest. The chapel itself has hardly any decorations. The emphasis is on simplicity and closeness to nature. The chapel is open for visitors for only two short periods a day - in the morning and in the evening. The rest of the time is used mainly for marriage celebrations. To the world of architects, in terms of concept and design, this chapel is probably quite a masterpiece - a successful effort to bring the church and nature together. As a tourist attraction, it is probably over-rated. After all, unless the visitors are allowed to spend sufficient time in the chapel, there is no way they can start to appreciate the peacefulness and serenity that the architect aims to project. When in the neighbourhood, there is no harm seeking out the place and if timing is convenient, to go in to say a quiet prayer, but it is not a must-see attraction. ‬

‪Skip it. Underwhelming given the hype.

Over-rated and really awful attendants who think you are lucky to be allowed to see it. Service unbefitting to Japan, where the people are so lovely.

Bad signage. Crowded with pushy tourists.

Positives- easy access, especially if you go when it is not open.‬

‪Visited the night service only because there was nothing much to do in the resort. Took photos of the Water Chapel Cross for memory -other than that....not much to hype about.

‪We went in the evening during summer where you will enjoy the fireworks too. You are not allow to go into the area except stipulated time where you will be guided. If you are staying in Tomamu Resort, pay a visit at this serene Chapel eventhough you were only allow about 15 mins in the Chapel.‬

‪A must visit if you are staying in this resort. Beautiful and serene. In the night the trees were lit up to accentuate the cross in the middle of the water. ‬

‪Disappointing‬
דצמ׳ 2016 • חברים
‪Its photos on the website and in the catalogue are too astounding which creates a big fall when see the real one. Perhaps coz the lights outdoors were not lit. The presence of the front glass definitely destroy the fantastic view of the entire cross. Besides, there's no signage outside the building. We just thought there're lights and people walking out, and thus why not have a look. We had to go up two flights of stairs, then went down another flight before reaching the chapel.‬

‪Simplicity at its best. We went in the evening. The queue was long but it was worthwhile - although we only had a few minutes in the chapel. Serene walk to the chapel. Wish we had more time to sit on the pew and meditate. Love the simple cross rising from water.
