Glover Garden

Travel Guide - Glover Garden


Sitting in grounds covering approximately 30,000 meters square is the former residence of a Scottish trading merchant, Thomas Glover. The building, constructed in 1863, is the oldest wooden foreign residence in existence, and now designated as a national important cultural property. From the observation deck in the garden, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Nagasaki Port.
There are also other old western-style buildings in the garden which were relocated from other places around Nagasaki City. These buildings, including the former residence of the president of the Nagasaki District Court, were restored and reassembled here in order to replicate the look of this area during the turbulent times of the 19th century.
