This site runs down the hillside. I thought it easier to start sightseeing from the hilltop. From Ishibashi terminal of #5 tram, I used public free elevators to the entrance of the hilltop. We could also use escalators from the foot of the garden. Just...More

There are some good views of Nagasaki harbor. The exterior of the houses within the garden have not been maintained. I expected to see more flowers. Lots of hills and pathways. Overall, I was not impressed. Don’t go out of your way to visit Glover...More

Enjoy this beautiful garden. There are also several houses of early Western settlers to explore. Views of the harbor from the gardens are exquisite.

These are gardens connected to the house of Thomas Glover. They are well worth a visit. Lovely plants and shrubs and wonderful views over the bay.

The gardens here were probably the best we saw in Japan. Probably because they are western in style and so have nots of flowers. The garden is on a steep slope, but incorporates escalators so most people will find it accessible. Lots of historic buildings...More
