Nagasaki 🚅 Huis Ten Bosch 🚅 Yufuin 

ハウステンボスは、長崎市から1時間半かかる佐世保に位置するオランダテーマパークです。美しいオランダ風の街として長崎県のオランダとの歴史的な貿易関係を示し、そこは観光客でごった返していてディズニーランドみたいな感じだと考えられていますが、とても楽しくて、もっと長い時間を過ごせばよかったと思います。パーク内の交通機関及び主なアトラクションを含め、1日の入場料は6700円ぐらい、ディズニーランドより安いです。次回は、2~3日間にパークを見渡せるホテルに泊まればいいと思います。Huis Ten Bosch is a Dutch theme park located in Sasebo, Nagasaki, about 1.5 hours from Nagasaki City. This park reflects the prefecture’s historical trade relations with the Dutch and showcases a beautiful Dutch city. Although it may be considered quite touristy and therefore too much like Disneyland in that regard, I had a fabulous time and it is a shame we were only able to stay a few hours. The entrance for one day including in-park transportation and access to almost all attractions was about 6,700Â¥, so it is still cheaper than one full day at Tokyo Disneyland. Next time I come I would want to stay a few days at the local hotel that overlooks the park. 

夜になったら街にはレインボーのイルミネーションがあるそうで、クリスマスの際は特に美しいです。そういうイルミネーションを見ればよかったと思いますが、昼間には普通のクリスマス飾りを見るのが楽しかったです。The park is especially wonderful around Christmastime because apparently at night it turns into a rainbow town of beautiful lights. I so wish I could have witnessed that, but it was fun seeing the normal Christmas decorations during the day anyways.

様々な所で写真を撮りすぎて、一番好きなのを下にアップします。We took too many pictures at random places, so I will just post my favorite ones and comment on them.

一つの忘れられないことはテディーベアの博物館で、ベアがそんなに多くて信じられなかったのです!ちょっと変でしょうね。A memorable place within the park was the teddy bear museum. There were just so many teddy bears. Cute but a little bit too much…

オランダ建築で建てらてたお家が多くて、誰がそこに住んでいるか、本物か知りたかったです。もし人がここに住んだら、どうやって引っ越しますか?(笑) There were so many houses with Dutch architecture; I wonder if anyone actually lives there or if it is fake and all for show. The real question is, how do I move in here?

好きな場所は多くの花が入っている大邸宅で、一つの悪いことは1日パスを持っていても追加料金が必要となります。My favorite place was a giant mansion that had a bunch of flowers in it. The only downside to this mansion is that you have to pay an extra fee to enter even if you have the day pass.

ハウステンボスの後、4時間かかる由布院に早めに行きました。旅館みたいなホテルに泊まり、美味しい懐石を食べました。さらに、温泉に入ってよくのんびりできて、また東京に行く前にリラックスしていて本当によかったです。After Huis Ten Bosch we had to rush to Yufuin, a hot springs town that takes about 4 hours to get to. We stayed in a more traditional hotel and got to eat a good kaiseki dinner. We also got to relax in the much needed hot springs. A great way to finish off Kyushu before heading back to Tokyo again!
