[Main Part]

About one month after my previous trip to Dogo Onsen Hotspring, the next travel destination was Nagasaki. The main objective was to see Nagasaki Lantern Festival, which was held during Chinese New Year.  Nagasaki Lantern Festival was open mainly in the evening, so I visited other tourist spots in the daytime and spent the first day entirely on Huis Ten Bosch. Regarding the trip to Nagasaki for three days and two nights, I will write nine articles. So, let’s get started.

Going to Nagasaki by Solaseed Air

Three airlines (JAL, ANA and Solaseed Air) operate flights between Tokyo and Nagasaki. Solaseed Air operates only in Kushu area, so I used the airline this time.Solaseed Air

Huis Ten Bosch: Welcome Gate

After I arrived at Nagasaki airport, I directly went to Huis Ten Bosch by limousine bus. The photo below was the building of Welcome Gate.Huis Ten Bosch Welcome Gate

Huis Ten Bosh is so large with two zones and ten areas. I will post my photos by areas.

Flower Road

As the name suggests, this area is filled with seasonal flowers (tulips). There are also wind mills and it’s something like rural landscape in Netherland.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Flower Road and Amsterdam City etc. in Huis Ten Bosch as part of day 1. As Huis Ten Bosh is so huge, I would recommed you develop your plans as to what to see in advance. Oherwise, you may lose your time 🙂 In addition, I would recommend you buy “web ticket” in advance so that you can avoid queue at the entrance.

In the next article, I will continue to stroll Huis Ten Bosh and visit Tower City and Habor Town etc.

  1. 毎年、家族旅行に行っています。今年最後(主人がガンで余命2か月と宣告)の家族旅行にハウステンボスに行って来ました。
    観光客が少ないのには、びっくりしました。
    ウォータースキーショー楽しみにしていたのにスタッフの体調不良で休演。最低です。
    車椅子で園内を回ったのですが、歩道にテーブルや椅子、車などがあり通れないところもあり、真ん中の道を通るとガタガタしているし、段差が多く大変でした。改善してほしいです車椅子だと入れない施設も結構ありました。障がい者でも楽しめるようにしてほしいです。
    光の王国はとても良く、最高でした。
    料金は高かいし、一日半居ただけで、家族3人で6万円位使いました。ぼったくりすぎだと思います。                                     最後の旅行あまり楽しめなかったみたいで選択ミスだったのではと後悔しています。

    1. 匿名さん、コメントありがとうございます。家族旅行の件、お話しを伺う限り残念な思い出が残ってしまったようでうですね。確かにバリアフリーの点については、改善の余地がありそうですし、料金も高い印象でした。
