Prepare to be back in time!

This was by far my favorite place at my trip to Nagasaki. The garden and everything inside it had a charm. You will feel a little of nostalgia within the place, the ladies dressing Victorian-ish dress style will make you feel back in time, and the view of the city at the very pond, it is just too much beauty in this place!
Great spot for dates and lovers!

Nice scenery from the garden

We took the Glover Sky Road to Glover Garden. After getting off the Sky Road, we were greeted with a lovely view of Nagasaki.
Unfortunately, there were not so many flowers in bloom because of the change of seasons.
We visited Glover’s house and saw the furniture. The view from Glover’s house was very beautiful. The site is huge, so we walked around and enjoyed the nature there. There were cafes and souvenir shop which was really nice. At the exit of the museum, there was a display of Nagasaki’s traditional festivals. I found it very interesting.

Beautiful garden

You can see former Glover's house which is the world heritage in this garden. The view from top of the hill was pretty! Also, there are some good cafes. They have lunch menu, sweets, and drinks etc. I tried the milk shake and it was really good! I think I could stay there longer since I loved the calm atmosphere so much.

Still have no idea why we bothered

Shot up here after the Nagasaki Bomb Museum, took some shots in front of the House round the fish ponds (no time to visit or enter) and left to go back down to lunch.

The best facet of this Attraction was the escalator up.

Had we had more time, who knows - we won't.

A Nice Way to Spend an Afternoon
Mar 2020 • Solo
Glover Garden sits high above the port of Nagasaki and is the perfect place to spend a relaxing time whilst also learning a bit about the beginnings of westernization of Japan as Thomas Glover brought the Industrial Revolution to Nagasaki. The gardens and the residences of Glover and his partners take you back to the late 1800's. The views of the port and the city of Nagasaki alone are worth the price of admission. There is a tea room and and outdoor snack and beverage stand. For those who like to dress up in the fashions of the times - European style - there is a shop that will accompany it. And, for opera lovers, there is a statue of Puccini and the Japanese diva who popularized his opera set in Nagasaki - " Madame Butterfly".

A Place to see Western Style Mansions
Dec 2019
Glover Garden is basically an open air museum displaying western style mansions. The Former Glover House which is the main attraction is under renovation. However, the entrance fee remains the same at 620 yen per person even though you cannot go into the main attraction.
