Nagasaki is a city so soaked in the history of Japan and the West that you can hardly turn a corner without stepping into a significant space. The Glover Garden is one such place. In 1863, Thomas Blake Glover, a Scotsman, established his estate on top of Minami-Yamate hill. In 1898, the American John Luther Long wrote “Madame Butterfly”, a short story that an Italian composer later turned into an opera of the same name. The Glover Garden’s ambiance and history have led to it being nicknamed “the Madame Butterfly House”, and today it is Nagasaki’s oldest Western-style wooden house.

The November Night Illuminations are a gorgeous counterpart to the summer illuminations: in the brisk cold of the southern island’s winter, you can see the Gardens’ shrubbery and lawns beautifully lit to create a Christmas-y mood. The park is open until 9pm most months, but will close at 8pm in November.
