Former Glover House, Nagasaki

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very good location is on a hill so. Of there, feel the history building and people lived in Western culture from here come the opening exchanges in this House made from Japan right now? Steep slope is the escalator to because is easy. I think wheelchairs, baby strollers are tough.

  • Thomas Blake Glover先生的住宅,他是蘇格蘭商人,在長崎港開放給外國人後,就來此經商,他將西方的技術引進日本,所以應該是對日本的現代化也有貢獻吧!屋前的空地面對長崎港,視野相當不錯,來此請留意地面有心形石,需要用心找一下!  more »
  • Glover is overlaid with age so impression have you ever changed. Buildings are decrepit and feel bigger when I was in high school, did not have the impression of other buildings on site. There was no odd Glover's memory is too!
