Glover House and Office, Nagasaki

4.1
Nestled in lush gardens, Glover House and Office 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.

  • Glover Garden is a very famous building that is the biggest attraction and world heritage and important cultural property of the country. When I visited before, I fell in love with the beautiful interior, but now i am under earthquake-proof construction and cannot even see the exterior of the building itself, let alone entering the building. I think that the person of the glover house aim should visit after the construction ends and is not disappointed.

  • We finally arrived through the slope. Pay the entrance fee and enter the park! A garden with colorful flowers. We fed the carp in the pond and enjoyed a break at the café. Well, while going down the park to the main old glover house, " That?? Glover house is undergoing major renovation. It was covered with sheets and i couldn't see it at all. I was disappointed only by the amount that I was looking forward to. I wanted you to show me around at least at the time of ticket sales.

  • Glover House is currently under construction. Other buildings can look around. It seems to be doing the earthquake-resistant construction by aging very much. I took a picture of only the roof under construction.
