Nestled in lush gardens, Glover House and Office probably served as the inspiration for Puccini's "Madam Butterfly." Scottish merchant Thomas Blake Glover built the house in 1863, blending traditional Japanese architectural elements with Georgian-style exterior.

In the park, look for the statues of Puccini and Miura Tamaki, who played Madam Butterfly.
