Glover Garden, Nagasaki

4.1
Glover Garden shows off an array of Western-style homes that once belonged to the area's foreign residents. The latter half of the 19th century saw the country's age of isolation ended, as trade reopened with Europe and North America. Explore the open-air museum and you'll see the luxurious mansions and residences of railroad tycoons, merchants, and other foreigners who once lived here. Don't miss the home of industrialist Andrew Glover--the building blends Japanese and Western architecture and offers a sweeping view of the city harbor.

You can enjoy just looking at each building, but if you look at the landlord's background, you'll enjoy it more. I think that it is easy to walk because i can see it in the form which goes down the hill when i start a walk from the second gate.
