    More in depth that I originally thought, kinda pricy
    At first I glance I thought the park looked beautiful but it lacked depth- seemingly more meant for kids and QUITE expensive for what you get. Comparatively this is nearly as expensive as Tokyo Disneyland/Disney Sea and for me way less interesting. Yes I did very much enjoy the absolutely beautiful flowers and well designed buildings. There was some small shops that were cute and some fun walk through experiences that we did enjoy. I think if we had more time to go through some more experiences it might have been worth it however it was pouring rain & we had to hurry off to return to our cruise ship on time so we only stayed maybe 2 hours. Definitely take your time and explore, there’s so many areas!

    Dutch theme park with winter illumination
    We thoroughly enjoyed this theme park. We stayed the whole day from the park's opening to the closing at night, enjoying the Dutch architecture buildings, the performances and winter illumination. Since it is the end of the year, there were also Christmas decorations and night time illumination which adds to the holiday feel. There were also VR rides which were fun. For those looking for thrilling rides at theme parks, this is not the place. The rides were more for younger children and were rather tame but suited us well. There is also an adventure area with flying fox, suspension bridges and high elements for kids. What stood out were the amazing dining options. We ate lunch at Tottotto located at Tower City which served Western such as hamburger steak, omelet rice and doria. Food was very reasonably priced and tasted authentic and delicious. We ate dinner at an Italian restaurant, Pinoccio, also located at Tower City. The pasta and pizza were amazing. Prices were also reasonable and comparable to any other Italian restaurants. . We were impressed that Huis Ten Bosch did not mark up the food prices like other theme parks! There were not too many visitors in November when we visited which was a relief because we hate crowded theme parks. One tip - we bought tickets from Klook during the summer sale for our visit in November. We paid only about 5000 yen for an adult price ticket after the discount. Look out for such sales!

    Amazing place. Flowers everywhere!
    Went here during the tulip season. Amazing sights specially if you catch tulips during their bloom. Park is wuite big. Got the 1.5 day pass which is I believe just right to tour the park at comfortable pace. Plenty of food options also inside the park at reasonable cost

    Good place to visit
    Lots to do at the park for all ages. Tickets are not cheap, but acceptable. Not that nice if it's raining, would be nice if they add more indoor/covered cafes/restaurants. The scenery and flowers are nice, with some attractions and evening illuminations/shows and souvenir stores (look for the Huis Ten Bosch limited edition Nano Block!). Can get crowded, but can use the app to check the line up time/show times, which is quite useful. Quite a bit of walk inside the park , the shuttle can be more frequent. Some restaurants have quite a line up , and the ticket/queuing has to be done by Line app, which foreign visitors may not have.

    Good for Family excursion
    More for family outing with kids. Rather expensive entrance fee. Restaurant food is pricey inside. Go up to the highest building level to get a good view of the entire place. Very beautiful colourful lights at night and some fireworks to watch. Good place for photographs especially in spring where there are colourful tulip flowers everywhere.

Until we planned to visit Nagasaki last spring of 2023 we wouldn’t know there exists such a charming and enchanting theme park & resorts and perhaps of the biggest as well that is really worth a visit - Huis Ten Bosch. Located in Sasebo, Nagasaki it is based on Dutch style towns and iconic structures. in English it means “House at the Woods/Forest.” Named after the Hague, one of the official residence of the Dutch Royal family and de facto capital of the Netherlands. It has hotels, villas, theatre, museum, a Palace, shops and restaurants which are mostly Dutch themed style. The park has amusement rides, a canal traversing its course, bridges, charming gardens with colorful flowers and of course the iconic Windmills.

Opened in 1992, the foundation of the park is based on the historic relations between Japan and the Netherlands since the Shogunate days where the Dutch set up a trading post in the 17th century right at this place. Nagasaki was then a famous trading port especially for the Dutch during the Edo period when Japan was locked out from outside world for 250 years except for limited trading with the Dutch. Getting to Huis Tecn Bosch will take us 3 hrs++ journey from our base in Hakata, Fukuoka we took JR Kyushu Shinkansen to Nagasaki and takes about 1.5 hrs via Takeo Onsen and transfer train via Nishikyushu Shinkansen. From Nagasaki we have to transfer via JR Rapid Seaside Liner which takes more than an hour with a beautiful seaside scenery along the way. The park can also be accessed by boat via the Marina harbour from Airport/Sasebo. It was a long journey to Sasebo but its all worth it only that we don’t have much time since we arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon already although the park won’t close until 9 PM. We booked our tickets via Klook and the price is around 50 SGD++ per head. The place is so huge at 380 acres, it boasts 5 hotels, theme park, museum, theatre, gardens, windmils, bridges, canal, palace, shops and restaurants. Upon departing the Elegant black Seaside Liner train similar to that of English classic carriages, you will then be greeted by a Romantic bridge with the picturesques Hotel Okura standing on the other side. The place has its own train station similar to the Ornate designs of the 18th century and upon exiting you will be greeted by the bridge and you have to walk your way to the other side where the real journey begins. The place has so many beauitful IG worthy spots so just by the JR Seaside Line tracks, view of the Hotel Okura/Bridge and station itself we already had lots of photos. The bridge is made of Red cobbled bricks and Black Intricate metal railings adorned with cute flowers along and bridge lamps along the way.

It was a Rainy/Gloomy/Windy day that day and quite cold and if I could remember around 9 to 10 celcius right at the peak of Japanese Spring. We forgot to bring hotel umbrellas so we were forced to buy a classic Japanese transparent one in Lawson. Before we entered the theme park itself we took a quick lunch first at Pepper Lunch located in the town and mind you its so much better than other similar style of restaus. I ordered Hamburg steak with veggies and gravy and my partner ordered Chicken steak and both come with a side salad. Since its almost 3 in the afternoon we were the only 2 dining that time and its a very delightful experience. The price is also pretty reasonable at just over 1000 yen each plate especially its located inside a theme park. After a full yummy meal we headed our way to the main entrance and provided our QR code tickets purchased from Klook and it was very quick, smooth and easy. And lo and behold we were greeted by the beautiful Dutch style Windmills, the colorful sign of Huis Ten Bosch, the Dutch style Red bricked Fortress and the colorful flowers surrounding us.

My review will focus on the places we’ve visited and walked by because the park is so huge and we only have 3 hrs to explore. The main facade that will greet you houses Kasteel Nijenrode or the Teddy Bear Kingdom which is a store as well selling cute Teddy Bears. Then Lo and Behold you are in for the most lovely, picturesque and colorful garden and one of the best I’ve been surrounded by Black Windmills and White Fences - nothing could get better Dutch than this. It was late Spring so we saw some Marigold, Begonia, and Ageratum. If it was early Spring we would have seen the iconic Tulips so the flowers in the park were seasonal like Roses will be there during summer. We didn’t waste time and started taking those memorable, dazzling and adoring photos and videos. Just upon entrance we have checked our bucket list of seeing these windmills and the charming flowers. My favourite are the Yellow ones and their plentiful especially placed on the main pathways. I felt like in the Wizard of Oz walking in the Yellow Brick Lanes. As we continue our walking there were some drizzles already and it has became colder. We were not that prepared and just brought some sweaters with us and no under heaters. Anyway as they say the show must go on so we made our way until we entered Stadspoort Delft or the city in Southern Holland. Just like the Dutch architecture it has Red brick facade and pointed roofs. We entered the city of Delft with structures similar to the city - White and Red bricked facades, Triangular pointed roofs and Columns, Cobbled stone walkways, charming Gardens and as usual lots of cute flowers.

One thing that greeted us is the massive and wide artificial Dutch style canal criss-crossing Huis Ten Bosch and we saw it first hand now. The canal is 6 KM long and it has to be dugged and purely man made. Truly a work of human masterpiece and technology. There is a boat ride along the canal which traverses several bridges and passing throughout the park. The very high and big Ferris Wheel and magical 3 floor brightly lit Carousel (Kid’s world) is located on both sides of the canal just after the gate we entered. We also noticed small Brown Huts along the canal banks which could be some kind of stations. There are benches, street lamps, and many resting area along the canal banks. We didn’t try both of them due to time constraint but we did took a couple of photos and videos around this area for memories to cherish forever. As you continue walking, you will feel like your inside a Dutch village and that day its not crowded being a weekday and rainy. So we have a lot of spaces for us to take those lovely shots. The building that caught my attention as we walk is the Restaurant with Red brick facade and Pink windows (forgot to get the name) as well as a house with a Pink door - truly adorable. Of course, photos must be there.

We continued walking and we passed by a romantic Red bridge which passes the canal with a bird’s eye view of the boats passing and the towering Dutch tower of Utrecht on the western side, truly iconic with its 3 layered square blocks structure and pointered spheres up to the top where the Christian Cross is placed. The tower is 100 m high and part of St. Martin’s Cathedral. Of course, another perfect place to take our adorable shots. As we moved on, we passed this magical store of Rose de Marche with outdoor seating surrounded by colorful flowers. Its Brown brick roof and White facade are just right in front of the massive Wheel. Next perhaps is one of the biggest buildings here - Huis Ten Bosch Theater which is also equally splendid and worth to take your picturesque photos. Then as we left the village we passed by a massive steel chains and columns which support and locks the gate and the wooden bridge truly Dutch style. From this view we have a different angle of the windmills and the colorful flowers that surround the park. We also took a lot of photos and videos from this angle.

The only thing we missed to visit is the Huis Ten Bosch palace but if ever we come back again we will definitely drop by this first and also try the boat ride, ferris wheel and the carousel and during Sakura season where Tulips are in Royal display. One of the most memorable shots we’ve taken is by the steel Black coffee tables located just beside the windmill because we felt for some moment we were in Europe, one of our dream destinations in the future. Kudos to the wonderful team of Huis Ten Bosch, truly a worthwhile visit, enchanting, magical, romantic and lets you experience Netherlands right here in Asia. We will surely visit you again and recommend to our families and friends who plan to visit Nagasaki!!! Mata ne!!! :=)

Weird because it gets a lot of hype. Very strange place. Basically a park with a large amount of buildings, canals and expensive hotels. Flowers are probably nice in the spring. But rides- not really. Shows- not really. This isn’t Disney or even some of the less popular parks. Go to take pictures and walk through redundant shops of junk. I’m sure the lights are pretty. But it’s an expensive ticket for Christmas lights.

This was an absolutely gorgeous theme park that was laid back with way less crowds than Disney or Universal Japan. The lights at night are so out of this world that a stay at one of the really expensive hotels on the property is a must to take it all in.

There are lots of different variety of attractions that all ages will enjoy. One even takes you to a remote island and fight dinosaurs! The hotels give you free entrance to the hot spring operated by the theme which was also a nice treat.

Another thing I find that's great here is the food. The food are generous in portion and tastes great, while costing similarly as a regular meal outside of themeparks. This was a huge surprise to us.

I would definitely come back to here in the future if I'm visiting Kyushu.

We visited this theme park in December 2022 during our trip in Kyushu area.

The location is a bit far away, either from Kumamoto or Nagasaki.

Even though they provided various ticket options, but for us, we took the 3pm ticket, since we didn't plan to stay too long in the park. Anyway, it was pretty crowded and for some attractions, the waiting time could be more than 1 hour. We skipped all "long-queue" attractions and only selected the "empty" ones.

Our main focus was the illumination show at night which was very impressive. Not sure if this kind of show is part of their regular programmes or just for the winter season.
