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.
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.
First of all, I stopped by an ice cream shop.
Now, I started to explore Huis Ten Bosch.
Huis Ten Bosh is so large with two zones and ten areas. I will post my photos by areas.
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.
There are several amusement facilities in this area.
Near the entrance of the area.
House of Earl Chocolat
Happy balloon street
I had Sasebo burger, a local gourmet, for lunch.
After lunch, I moved to Amsterdam City.
As the name suggests, this area recreates streetscape of Amsterdam in Netherland.
There is also Hotel Amsterdam.
Gyaman Museum focusing on glass art from around the world is located in this tall building .

Then, I will move to the next area, and I will write about it in the next article.
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.
