Huis Ten Bosch (House in the Forest)4.6
Huis Ten Bosch, one of the largest theme parks in Japan, is a park recreating a Dutch town. The park is named after a residence of the Dutch Royal Family and means 'house in the forest'. In a picturesque, forested environment, there are a huge variety of activities that both adults and children can enjoy. Amusement rides, art galleries and hotel are also available.
This is a year-round spot with seasonal flowers blooming and various events taking place at different times of the year. Among the most popular are the tulip festival from February to April, the moss pink garden where 250,000 stumps blooming in April, and fascinating illumination in the winter months.

Amazingly well kept theme park with European atmosphere. There are lots going that are nothing to do with Holland or Europe but they are mostly really cool for family holiday. Some attractions in holiday seasons are good but very little in capacity, especially in adventure zone. We were very disappointed that there were no way we can try the zip line ride as it can only accommodate a few hundreds per half a day and the tickets gone as soon as the gate opened to public.

Been here for almost 3 or 4 times, and never get bored! It's a big park that's going to take up a whole day, especially if you are quite slow while walking. This place is incredibly friendly and accessible from babies, and even the seniors, additionally with a great view and various events.
I also love the fact that the park has Miffy Cafe (at the time I was visiting the park) that has Miffy, and provide foods without 26 kinds of allergens. So in case where you have to bring a group of people who is very demanding regarding their meal and allergens, things should be alright. I highly recommend visiting this place during either spring/autumn during either April/October, it has the best view and usually tons of flower festival going on there.

I am not a fan of amusement parks but I got to say Huis Ten Bosch is really better than I expected. I really enjoyed my time here especially they had hanabi(fireworks) later at night.楽しかった ありがとうございました I am attaching a few pics

It's quite nice place. It looks like European architecture but the entrance fee is quite expensive. We can't play all things in a day so I don't suggest to buy the highest price ticket. We can choose to enter and enjoy the atmosphere inside with lower price. My daughter only play one or two things in a day so it wastes of money.

It’s a big park so I’d recommend renting a bike. My friend and I went there early November (2016) and the autumn foliage was in peak, making everything prettier. Food is surprisingly affordable. Not much rides or attractions but still worth a day of exploration.
Stay until late, the park lights up very beautifully.
Kudos to their park playlist too!
The train lines going to Nagasaki were down during the day we went there. So we went there by Bus instead. We booked our Bus ride going back (to Fukuoka) before going inside the park.

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
