Historical buildings & garden in a beautiful park Jul 26, 2000
Glover Garden is a park where the homes of several foreign merhcants lived during the trade period in the 19th century, after Japan ended it's seclusion from the rest of the world.

One of the homes in the park is that of Thomas Blake Glover, a scottish merchant who had his house build there in 1863 by a japense carpenter.

The park allows you to walk around and look at the historical buildings (such as the Walker House, the Alt House and the Ringer House), as well as offering beautiful views over the city of Nagasaki and its harbour/shipyard.

We didn't much time to explore all of the park, but this is a place I would like to return to when I'm in Nagasaki again. The green surroundings made it a walk worthwhile.

An entrance ticket costs 600 yen (around 5,50 euro or around 7,50 US dollars).

It's an open air museum, so you pay for the maintenance of the park and buildings

Sad though, that you have to pay so much for entrance fee to be in a park. But, I guess, it is almost like a botanical garden or like a museum.
