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

Nagasaki Main Areas
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.
