Part of paying the grover garden entrance of 610yen is the former Glover residents. Built in 1863, this is the oldest western style house in Japan. Inside the house are artifacts and antiques that depict that time.

Part of the trip to Glover Garden. On its own it is not as impressive as the site as a whole, but certainly worth looking over. Some good interior rooms and informative plaques relate an important part of Nakasaki history. For another completely different slant on this, I recommend you read David Mitchell's novel "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de... More

Look, I have visted the Glover Residence before and I was rushed so I did not get into the house itself. The gardens at the time were beautiful. This time I visited the insode of the home and it is.....at best a disgrace. I don't know who is responsible but it is dusty, falling apart and would probably make Mr... More

Glover gardens gives a good idea of some of the history of Nagasaki that has nothing to do with the atomic bomb. It's also very pretty. To get to Glover Gardens you pass through a particularly touristy area which is interesting in itself. I'm pleased I visited this place.

A very pleasant stroll from one historical site to another. All the while never losing sight of the vast and beautiful Nagasaki Harbor. One house displayed the original staging of the "Madam Butterfly" opera, with original costums and photos of the first MB diva. Interesting historical displays of photos showing the development of the area. Explore at your own pace.... More

Average place to visit if you strangely want to know what foreigners did in Nagasaki. Other than the old buildings, nothing much is significant. Save your morning the the mountain trip in Nagasaki.

A worthwhile visit. Interesting to learn about the involvement of Europeans in the development of japan after the opening of Japanese ports and how Glover made his fortune. WWII and the impact on the family was sad.

Very interesting to see how "the chosen few" dwelled and lived in their time in this beautiful park with stunning view over the city and harbour of Nagasaki.
