Follow me! I will show you 'Glover Garden' and its history..
     

   
                             A statue of Thoomas B. Glover

Thomas B. Glover Residence is Japan's oldest wooden Western-style residence. Through his trading businesses, Glover contributed much to Japan's modernization. The gardens, in addition to revealing the living circumstances of Nagasaki's foreign residents during what is known as "the period of foreign settlement," also display an abundance of fascinating natural beauty.

   
              日本語はなぜか‘グラバー園’と言います。。

   
Glover Garden is situated on the southern slope of a mountain. Its excellent vantage point offers a superb and extensive view of Nagasaki Harbor.



   

         
                        beautiful flowers are in full bloom..wow!!

   
The gardens feature the former Glover Residence..Later on, six other Western-style residences from the Meiji era that had been built throughout the city were dismantled, moved, reconstructed and restored as important national cultural properties on this site of former foreign settlements. They joined the former Glover Residence, the former Ringer Residence, and the former Alt Residence on the site.

   
This excellent vantage point offers a superb and extensive view of Nagasaki Harbor.
   
  From Glover Garden, you could see the shipyard which belongs to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. 

   

      
                     So did you enjoy it? Come and visit Nagasaki
