Views from the park are stunning, and I appreciated the free elevator to reach the upper end of the large park area. I wanted to see the sculpture of the soprano who sang the role of Madame Butterfly for 30 years, and a related sculpture of the opera composer, Puccini. The houses in the park represent Western style homes built... More

Part of the garden tour, you can get up and close to the house. Grand views and beautiful gardens, just a lot of walking to get to this place.

This house is in Glover Park so if you pay to get into that you can see this. One house or another didn't stand out for me I thought they were all equally interesting. The park is a lovely calm place where you can rest and relax away from the heat.

The park offers a great view of the harbor. Around Christmas, there's special lighting at night. It's a pity the day ticket cannot be used at night again.

A very difficult access as the residence is at the top of a very steep hill. On the grounds there are escalators to assist but no such help in reaching the grounds. Interesting site if not earth shaking. So many shops on the way up the hill, all selling their own versions of what we would call 'pound cake', a... More

A time capsule in the gardens. The house looks like it could have been in the UK but is in Nagasaki. The house is "dressed" as though the occupants have just left.

Seated on a hilly area, the Clover Garden provide many viewing spots of the overview of Nagasaki. From the entrance, this place didn't look very interesting, but it was a good 2-3 hour tour afterwards. Many beautiful western architecture. A good place to learn about part of Nagasaki's history as a port city.

This house is part of the complex known as Glover Garden and was built in 1863 by Thomas Glover - a Scotsman who made a large contribution to bringing Japan into the industrial age. His house reflect his status not least its position at the top of the hill allowing for stunning panoramic views over the port & harbour. Inside... More

This house is so magical - it's going to be my future home - or at least have several of it's outstandingly charming features melded into my dream abode - lovely. Interesting man that Glover was too, which you can read about as you tour the residence.
