A trip to Huis Ten Bosch

After stating in my previous travel post that I’d write about this soon (but I didn’t and eventually didn’t have enough time again), I’m finally posting this in the middle of the night just for the sake to get this off my mind. 

And yes, I know the cover picture isn’t the most beautiful but that’s the only entrance gate to Huis Ten Bosch that I took on a rush.

Huis Ten Bosch is located in Sasebo, Nagasaki. It’s your typical Disneyland but with every building being a recreation of old Dutch architecture. Getting here took me around 2 – 3 hour by bus due to heavy traffic we experienced last time. You need to reserve the bus seats long before you start your trip otherwise you won’t get any chance of going. You can also use trains but it’s a lot more expensive than buses.

Some real-life sized cars
Working windmills (you can go inside and see how it works). These things are everywhere.

There’s nothing much but several photo spots for visitors when they first come in.  You can get your guide maps here too and they’re available in English.

Huis Ten Bosch provides lots of entertainments and services. The gondola is one of them. You can ride them if you have a one-day pass (free rides and all attractions, there are exceptions) or if you pay for the ticket separately. If you’ve come here to play then I suggest to just get the one-day pass since it’ll be very worth it. This area I took a picture of has a lot of food being sold. Be warned that they’re not cheap, though. There are a lot of pasta and pizzas and also some Japanese snacks.

Some museum building

The big white building is some sort of glass or antique museum (if I’m not wrong). Again, if you have the pass, they won’t charge you extra for entering. There are some other museums scattered around the place as well. I love the porcelain one the most among all of them. Usually, they sell corresponding items in the store that you can access just as you exit the museum. I got myself a gorgeous wind chime. Too bad I don’t have it here with me in Japan since my mom brought it back to my country. Haha.

As you can see, all of my pictures only show sceneries of the place. The reason behind that is because most of the attractions provided are Virtual Reality which I’m super bad at. But I could enjoy my self by sightseeing, entering museums, snacking upon a lot of things, window shopping (and the actual shopping) and spending the time with my mom.

If you’ve never been to Huis Ten Bosch before, I suggest you to go there at least once when you get the chance in the future.

(Sorry for this uninformative post about the trip. I will add more when I get enlightenment from my sad old brain.)

  1. Huis Ten Bosch looks very nice! It definitely reminds me of Europe! I’m glad you were able to go on this trip, and I think all your photos including the cover photo looks very nice! As a mom, you don’t have time for that perfect shot, so anything is good. lol I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in forever. I actually had all my posts in a draft, and I just posted them all now. I thought I had set it up to autopost, but I guess not. lol I been super busy, or just not feeling like blogging here lately. Anyways, glad to see you posted too!
