Huis Ten Bosch and Hen-na -Hotel

Once Halloween ends, Japan quickly enters the Christmas celebration mood. From local supermarkets to convenient stores, from beverage to confectionery companies, from department stores to theme parks, Christmas decorations can be found almost everywhere from this time onward throughout Japan. This time, let’s me introduce the winter illumination event in Huis Ten Bosch.


Huis Ten Bosch, located in Nagasaki prefecture, is a theme park which replicates Dutch town. Built in 1992, it has been one of the most popular destination in the region. Huis Ten Bosch consists of many attractions, museums, restaurants, shops and hotels. The park is divided into 9 areas, in which rides and attractions are mainly located in Attraction town, Thriller city and Adventure park. WC2891_zpsbxmocn7u

Okay, let’s get to the main topic, winter illumination event! Huis Ten Bosch lit-up from early November to mid April. The whole area is immersed in thousands of sparkling lights!

Smart hotel, Hen-na-hotel opened just last year.

It is highly recommended to spend at least one night at one of Huis Ten Bosch’s themed hotels. There are 3 hotels, Hotel Amsterdam, Europe hotel and the Forest Villa. Hotel Amsterdam is the only one located inside the theme park itself.
