New Year's Day at Huis Ten Bosch

Enjoy Japanese New Year at the European theme park!

Located beside the Omura Bay in Sasebo City, Nagasaki, Huis Ten Bosch is a mammoth theme park which is as large as Tokyo Disney Land and Disney Sea combined. 

This theme park was build to reproduce townscape of the Netherlands in 1992, and after the turbulent, non-linear history, the park is currently run by a travel agency H.I.S. It's open 365 days a year and each season offers different pleasure. Around the year-end the countdown fireworks and various festivals will be held. You can enjoy a special Japanese New Year breakfast at a European hotel inside a European theme park. Why don't you try out this unique New Year celebration at Huis Ten Bosch?

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
