Nagasaki's Glover Garden

Meiji Period architecture, lovely European gardens and fantastic views across Nagasaki.

Glover Garden is an open air museum with fantastic views across Nagasaki City. The grounds include the former mansions of European merchants who settled in Nagasaki in the second half of the 19th Century (the Meiji Period) when Japan ended its years of isolation from the international community. 

Among the colonial-style houses are the residences of the Scottish merchant Thomas Glover.
