  • It is similar to a foreign cemetery in Yokohama. I visited it when I took a walk around Oura Cathedral and Glover Garden. It is said that the foreigner who visited Japan which opened in the end of the Edo period and died the guest is buried. It's not a tourist attraction, but I think it's a good place to get to know the international city of Nagasaki.
