I highly recommend an easy tram ride to Glover Garden where the view over Nagasaki Bay is superb.
I strolled up there early one fresh January morning and had the place practically to myself - a feat in itself considering Japan's human abundance. One can enjoy a peaceful and uninterrupted view in the pleasant surroundings of this colonial garden. I was not surprised to hear that Nagasaki Bay at night rates in the top three of Japan's most romantic views.
There are also many other places of interest in Nagasaki. No visit there would be complete without a trip to the world-famous Peace Park or U-Bomb Museum close by. It is a sobering yet enlightening experience to see the fresh beauty and growth of a place that was all but obliterated a mere sixty years ago. The message of Nagasaki is hope.
At Nagasaki bus and train station, there is a very helpful tourist information desk that provides detailed maps highlighting places of interest. A discounted day pass for Nagasaki's tram can also be purchased here. There is a tram stop right opposite the station and Glover Garden is a pleasant 15 minute ride away
