Going all the way back to May again, it was a beautiful sunny late morning when I started my explorations of Nagasaki. My first stop was a hilltop collection of Western-style homes called Glover Garden.
One last view of a house at the bottom before I head on my way.
Westerners were an important part of Nagasaki's past and this garden/collection of houses gives a glimpse into their life in the city a hundred years ago. Admission is 600 yen for adults (cheaper for children) and the garden opens at 8AM daily (closing at 6pm or later). Access is easiest via the #5 tram, Oura Tenshudo-shita station, then following the signs or people toward the cathedral and along the road to the garden (note the pictures above leading to the Glover Garden entrance gate).
