Former Glover House, Nagasaki

4.3
Nestled in lush gardens, Former Glover House probably served as the inspiration for Puccini's "Madam Butterfly." Scottish merchant Thomas Blake Glover built the house in 1863, blending traditional Japanese architectural elements with Georgian-style exterior. Notice the structure's latticed arches, stone-floored verandas, French windows, and British chimneys mounted on a Japanese roof covered with demon-headed tiles. In the park, look for the statues of Puccini and Miura Tamaki, who played Madam Butterfly.

  • Diagonal elevator that went Ishibashi station at the end, oura Catholic Church 堂下 is the nearest train station and a short walk through Glover house near the nabekanmuri road was very noisy.

  • The house needs a little tender loving care but is a reminder of wealth Mr Glover obtained while in Japan. It is half way down the gardens but still has a good view of Nagasaki harbour.  more »
  • Illusion came as foreign land and entering into fall. All buildings in European style, the Netherlands days of yore. It is also a place overlooking Nagasaki Harbor, very good. I can enjoy the young and old, and where it can take pictures dressed in period costume.

  • European four star boutique hotel style. In the cosy Salon rooms are small but cozy. Very convenient location and the staff hard, feels good. Concierge features are just sloppy with caution. And no electrical outlets can charge Smartphone in your room. It may be there wedding and parking in the city than tourists from outside guests from Kyushu in the main target. If you stick out and even then it was a very nice hotel.
