This garden contains an impressive assortment of 19th-century Western houses. Greco-Roman porticos and arches, wooden verandas, and other random elements of European architecture adorn these houses, which are often crowned with Japanese-style roofs. The main attraction is the 1863 mansion of Thomas Glover, a prominent Scottish merchant who introduced steam locomotives and industrialized coal mining to Japan. Escalators whisk you up the steep hillside to the gardens, where
you can admire the views of Nagasaki and the harbor. Take Streetcar 5 to Oura Tenshudo-shita and follow the signs.
