the garden is a short walk from the cruise terminal. it is behind the historic looking building (formerly HSBC) across the street. if you hit the police station or the post office, you have gone too far right. we spent some quiet time roaming the garden and checking out the westerners influence on this town. Quite enjoyable. Entrance fee is... More

This garden houses a collection of older buildings that have been moved from around the city. They are most western design so help you understand the big changes in Japan in the 19th century. There are 2 ways to access the garden, the uphill path from the harbour or "Glover skyway" which goes from the tram terminus and combines 3... More

This is a huge and beautiful garden. Take some time to take a slow walk and there is a small building at the top, overlooking the Harbour which is amazing!

The other attraction, besides Dejima, offering information on the Europe-Japanese exchanges and the role of westerners in the modernization of Japan. Glover Garden is worth visiting not only for its historical value, but also for the views of the bay, from across Mt. Inasa and the beautiful colonial houses it contains.

Absolutely should not be missed while in Nagasaki along with Mt. Inasa and the Peace Statue is this garden: for firstly a pretty amazing view (to its west) of the Nagasaki Harbor which in a sense is a "big inlet" around which most of the city or for sure its "core area" is located so unfolding in front of you...

We stopped for a day during cruise. We were able to secure a free guide for the day. Gliver garden is perched atop a hill in Nagasaki. The gardens and buildings are beautiful. There lots of local history throughout the whole area. You are walking down steep slopes but they have handrails etc. 86 yr old mother managed. Float museum... More

On the side of the hills overlooking the port of Nagasaki, and a short walk from a cruise ship, this place is so worth visiting. Escalators take you to the top of the gardens and then you can wend your way down through flowers, shrubs and trees and past (and through) old European colonial style homes, There is a pool... More

If you take Nagasaki electrical tramway from the China town and take off after the Seaside park, then you climb the Dutch slope passing by the old, romantic Oura catholic church you will be at the entrance of the Glover garden. The are is nicely maintained with quite a few very nice and creative fountains. Old houses will give you... More

I didn't have high expectations going in to the garden despite the good reviews. However was pleasantly surprised by a beautiful experience. The gardens are full of historical buildings from shortly after Japan opened its doors to foreigners. We went on a sunny day and the place had stunning views to accompany the beautiful buildings. Left knowing a lot more... More
