Huis Ten Bosch Theme Park (ハウステンボス) is an amazing replica of a Dutch city located in Nagasaki (West Japan).
Getting To Huis Ten Bosch (ハウステンボス)
Located an hour North from Nagasaki is the Dutch amusement park city of Huis Ten Bosch. I initially went here to stay at a Robot Henna Hotel mentioned on Atlas Obscura and found out it was a Dutch City Amusement Park when I got there!
As soon as you get on the Huis Ten Bosch train, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a new world.
Huis Ten Bosch Japan Pricing
Getting in to Huis Ten Bosch Nagasaki is pretty expensive. You’re really paying for the environment since they don’t have any rides.
Pricing can be found on the Official Huis Ten Bosch website.
- Huis Ten Bosch Hours: Daily from 09:00 to 22:00
- Adult Full Day: 6900 JPY ($61.67 USD)
- Adult After 4pm: 5300 JPY ($47.37 USD)
- Adult After 5pm: 4800 JPY ($42.90 USD)
That’s pretty expensive for a theme park! The last train to get you back to the city is around 9:30pm so be careful if you’re planning a day trip. Otherwise hotels at the park can cost you over $150 USD!
The expensive pricing though is absolutely worth it if you don’t like crowds! When I was there, the Japanese amusement park was very empty! There were more workers than guests! I loved how empty it was because it was a new experience since I didn’t have to wait for anything! The exact opposite experience of visiting Universal Studios Japan since waiting for a roller coaster there can be over 3 hours!
Huis Ten Bosch Japan Theme Park Areas
The park is modeled after a Dutch city and divided up into several sections. You can find the official Huis Ten Bosch Nagasaki map here.
Huis Ten Bosch Japan was much better than Holland! It was super clean and everything felt new and well-maintained.
Huis Ten Bosch Robot Restaurant
The most entertaining thing I found at Huis Ten Bosch Japan was the robot restaurant! Other than that, they also had gondola rides, VR arcades, Beer Garden, Live Music, restaurants, and gift shops.
It’s also important to mention that they sell Cremia Ice Cream! Definitely the best ice cream in the world!
