A very pretty recreation of a Dutch town. A pity that most attractions had add-on pricing. 4,500 yen entrance fee for park entry. 7,000 yen for being able to use the attractions. Felt a bit pricey. Nevertheless, had a good time taking pictures. Theme park was very well kept. Having visited Amsterdam, the canal house architecture and canals are legit.

You need to spend an entire day in this park in order to make your money worth. Definitely one of the weirder theme parks I’ve been to, but its great for family fun and the park is really gigantic. It is probably a good idea to stay at the hotels in the park if you have kids and want to spend more time in there. It is quite a walk from the JR Station (and the pathway is very luggage-wheel-unfriendly), and the bus station is right outside the entrance. Do remember to book a ticket when leaving though.

Pretty mesmerizing theme park with exhibits, rides, games, and other activities. There's plenty of food though none of them are any special. The Christmas illumination was wonderful. the evening Christmas market was extremely tiny but overall has nice ambience.

At first glance, the pricing must seem a little steep (about 7,000yen) but this theme park has many to offer inside especially at night.This place might not be as famous as Universal or Disney, but there is still plenty to see and area is huge. It would definitely take up the whole day and from what I experienced, the queue aren't as long as those in famous theme parks (you actually spend most of your time visiting the attractions, not simply queueing). The light up at night is super magical and beautiful. I visited in November when the weather was chilly but not too cold making it perfect. A splendid place for date, maybe even a proposal at night *wink*.

Can you imagine that Huis Ten Bosch was originally a farmland that was reclaimed from the sea. The land was filled with sluge, so the first thing they had to do was to improve the soil quality. They dug the land, composted it, and planted carefully selected 700,000 plants. Now, there is an eco friendly, environmentally conscious theme park. The garbage from hotels and restaurants is converted to fetilizer that is used in the park, and the waste water from the park is clearler than the water in Omura Bay, which the park faces. The park depends on the solar power generation for its electric supply. Huis Ten Bosch is not mere a theme park but the town of our future.Read moreClose
