Glover Garden (Former Glover House) (グラバー園(旧グラバー住宅))

4.0

Other Sightseeing Spot

This tourist facility features various historic Western-style buildings that were moved here and remodeled, with the crown jewel being the Glover House, Japan's oldest wooden Western-style building and which was erected here at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate. In 2015, the Glover House was registered as one of the World Heritage Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution: Iron and Steel, Shipbuilding and Coal Mining. The grounds are planted with numerous seasonal flowers such as rosebushes and bigleaf hydrangeas, providing visitors with colorful scenery year-round. The site also features a photo studio where visitors can take a commemorative picture wearing period clothing, as well as a coffee house offering a sweeping view of the harbor. Visitors are encouraged to make plenty of time and stroll the grounds leisurely.

Reviewed:2020/03/21 円柱形の石柱を持つエントランスが素敵ですね。
広いグラバー園の中の南側の端に近いあたりに建っていたのが、こちらの旧オルト住宅でした。
半独立型の堂々としたエントランスがよく目立つ洋風建築物で、江戸時代の末期に建てられたそうです。しっかりとした石造りの邸宅は、周囲の木々と調和している、そのたたずまいが素敵でした。
Reviewed:2020/03/08 重厚かつ優美
1865年築。イギリス人実業家の住宅で国の重要文化財に指定されている。
石造りの重厚な建物であるが、玄関前の噴水、ポーチとベランダの屋根を支える円柱、庭を彩る花々が優美さを感じさせる。グラバー園の中で最も美しい建物だと感じた。

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
