The sun has just set and the moon makes presence in the dark blue sky. Suddenly the magic happens: Millions of lights are turned on, and the theme park, which represents the Netherlands, becomes a village like in my dreams. I'm totally stunned by the beauty of the town right now and I don’t want to go back to the hotel. Not yet, I just want to enjoy the enchanting atmosphere of the park a bit longer—actually until late into the night. Follow me.
Huis Ten Bosch in Nagasaki is a theme park that offers an ever changing array of things to do and see. It does not just offer a spectacular illumination. It is not just a flower garden. It is all these things and much, much more.
A mystic island indeed; you could call it 'Ghost Island', but to me it feels more like an art museum, also considering that "Battleship Island" (that's how it is also called) has been put on the tentative UNESCO World Heritage list as part of the Modern Industrial Heritage Sites in Kyushu and Yamaguchi. Before its reopening to visitors in 2009 landing on the island was sometimes permitted to journalist only. Then, after an important pier restoration for better and safer landing, the island was finally opened for tourists as well. I will show you a series of images of my time exploring the remains of this mysterious place.
Sasebo's Kujukushima National Park features over 200 islands in a pristine setting, accessible only via a cruise from the mainland.
