Glover Garden, Nagasaki

4.1
Glover Garden shows off an array of Western-style homes that once belonged to the area's foreign residents. The latter half of the 19th century saw the country's age of isolation ended, as trade reopened with Europe and North America. Explore the open-air museum and you'll see the luxurious mansions and residences of railroad tycoons, merchants, and other foreigners who once lived here. Don't miss the home of industrialist Andrew Glover--the building blends Japanese and Western architecture and offers a sweeping view of the city harbor.

  • Many historical buildings are preserved around the mansions of people who contributed to the development of modern Nagasaki. Because it is a large site, it is just right for a walk and sightseeing. All the buildings are beautifully preserved and there are plenty of commentary. You can enjoy just looking at each building, but if you look at the landlord's background, you'll enjoy it more. I think that it is easy to walk because i can see it in the form which goes down the hill when i start a walk from the second gate.

  • The historical buildings built in various parts of the large garden are interesting. Unfortunately, Glover's house was not allowed in due to renovations, but the efforts of foreigners and Mitsubishi founders who got into business at The Port of Nagasaki were on display in various buildings. I was surprised that the industrial ruins of the Meiji era are not only Nagasaki but also Kagoshima, and in the izu mountain in the distance. Mr. Glover, who came to Japan and helped promote industry, was not necessarily blessed in his later years, but i was impressed that he had left a great wealth in this place in his work. On the other side of the bay is mitsubishi's large shipyard, which has made me realize the prosperity of Nagasaki for a long time.
