  • As for the foreigner cemetery of Nagasaki, it was not known at all that there was a place called the foreigner cemetery though it was knew for the first time that it was such a name of The Greatura International Cemetery near glover garden and the Dutch slope as the image of the elementary school. After visiting Sanno Shrine, you can walk about five minutes along Uragami Kaido and there is a cemetery on both sides of the road. There is an image of a foreigner cemetery lined up in an orderly fashion with a white stone monument, but the stone monument is also gray, and it is an impression that it seems to be a Japanese graveyard if there is no monument of the cross. It was fine on this day, but there were no other people inside, and it was dark and quiet. On the other side of the road was the Tomb of the Glover Family, and there was also the tomb of the famous Thomas Glover and his Japanese wife, Vine.

  • Sanno shrine from Shibaura on route and the cross stands to the right grave comes into view. Graceland cemetery on both sides, and front beside the Glover House cemetery. Glover oura district, not close to the urakami here Sakamoto too strange that. It looks like foreign cemetery into the cemetery and often seen in the movies. Less tilted tombstones decorated with flowers, such as Western-style, but few tourists now, being a copy to her flowers in the not to miss.
