    Sakamoto International Cemetery

    Sakamoto Cho 1
    Nagasaki, 852-8102
    +81 95 823 3631
    This cemetery has actually been around since the middle of the 17th Century, when Japan was closed to the rest of the world, but it was designated as an international cemetery in 1905. Within the cemetery are the graves of prominent Nagasaki citizens of the past such as Thomas Glover and his wife. Most Japanese find cemeteries rather morbid and frightening, meaning that you will probably not find too many visitors if you come here. It seems that cemeteries in Japan are frequently considered beautiful by a majority of Westerners, and Sakamoto is considered beautiful by most who visit.
