Glover Garden (Former Glover House)

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.

  • 明治時代に建てられたミッション系の学校だった建物です。

    広いグラバー園の一番奥、つまり一番南側の端に建っていたのが、こちらの旧スチイル記念学校です。 明治20年に、東山手に建てられたミッション系の学校だったそうです。白い木製の外壁を持つ、総2階建ての建物で、建物の中央の3階部分は鐘楼になっていました。
  • 簡素な内装

    グラバー園の一番端に建つ。1887年築の学校校舎。最終的に所有していた海星学園から寄贈され、1973年に現在地に移築された。内装は簡素であり、現在は写真や絵の展示に利用されている。
  • 居留地時代の木造洋風建築の学校です
