Huis Ten Bosch Hydrangea Festival

Enjoy thousands of hydrangeas in bloom

Hydrangeas are one of the highlights of Japan's rainy season, and Nagasaki's Huis Ten Bosch theme park showcases thousands of them from late May throughout the month of June. Their annual hydrangea festival allows visitors to enjoy these beautiful blooms in a European-styled setting, and there will be hydrangea-themed foods and merchandise available for purchase. If you have a green thumb, you can even purchase plants at the hydrangea market to nurture at home.

A full list of the events and activities during the hydrangea festival can be found on the official Huis Ten Bosch website. Also, admission prices to the park differ depending on the pass you get, but a standard one-day adult admission is priced at 7000 yen. This doesn't just include the hydrangea festival, but the entire range of attractions the park offers.

Getting there

For those visiting the area via public transport, Huis Ten Bosch Station (Ōmura Line) serves the theme park. The journey takes around 90 minutes from Nagasaki Station.

For those who opt to drive, paid on site parking is available. Prices differ by vehicle size, but a small car is priced at 800 yen per day.

Even when I have been there (13 years ago), it never stops feeling weird to see those Dutch names of the park and station. I wonder if there's a single person in Japan who can pronounce it correctly....

That's so cool! I never knew if it was a cliché, but I guess there's some truth to it!
