T.B. Glover and Chuzenji Lake

Glover House is a famous sightseeing place in Nagasaki.  Glover was a historically famous business person staying in Japan in last Edo Era and early Meiji Era.  After he moved from Nagasaki to Tokyo with support of Yataro Iwasaki, a founder of Mitsubishi, he started business of beer brewery which is an origin of "Kirin Beer", the most popular beer brand in Japan.  Glover spent much his time at Chuzenji Lake for his hobby of fishing and he built the second house near the lake.  Glover is said to be the first person to start fly fishing in Japan.  Glover imported trout from Canada and released it to "Yukawa" in Senjogahara Marsh at that time, which still lives and attracts many anglers now fishing in Oku-Nikko. Hans Hunter, an English business person, who bought Glover's house and reopened it as "Tokyo Angling and Country Club" where diplomats, international business people and upper-class Japanese could get together through trout fishing.  Senju-ga-hama is one of fishing places where these people enjoyed trout fishing in the early 20th century.  It is amazing that Nagasaki and Nikko, two famous locations are connected by Glover.  You can visit the place by E-bike trekking of B-Ike and may find your favorite historic story there.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

I was surprised that you're not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
