  • Speaking of Nagasaki's gaijin cemetery, I had the image of a student at Oura International Cemetery near Glover Garden and Holland Slope (I knew for the first time that it was such a name), but I didn't know that there were other places called foreign cemeteries. After visiting Sanno Shrine, walk along Urakami Kaido for about 5 minutes and you will find cemeteries on both sides of the road. Speaking of foreign cemeteries, there is an image that is arranged in an orderly manner with a white stone monument, but this cemetery has a stone monument and a cross monument.
