Glover Gardens are named so because of a wealthy Scottish man by the name of Thomas Glover who built his residence on the property in 1863. His residence is the oldest wooden building of western design in Japan, and it is considered an "important cultural asset" by the Japanese government. Within Glover Gardens are numerous other buildings—a total of nine—which were the residences of other Western families. The ground area comprises over 30,000 square feet and is quite attractive. The views of Nagasaki City to the north are also noteworthy. Come September, the gardens is one of several hosts of the Nagasaki Settlement Festival . If you're lucky enough to visit Nagasaki in December, the Glover Garden Winter Festival lights up the foliage in splendid fashion. Call for updated open hours.
