Huis Ten Bosch (ハウステンボス, Hausu Ten Bosu) is a theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture which recreates a Dutch town. It is named after one of the residences of the Dutch Royal Family. The spacious resort is suffused with a European atmosphere with its picturesque canals, iconic windmills, beautiful gardens and architecture.

Seasonal flowers further enhance the attractiveness of the scenery. Visitors can have a good time indulging in the view, enjoying the many attractions, savoring a meal at one of the many restaurants or relaxing in a leisure boat touring the canals. Various events also take place at different times of the year, for example, a tulip festival during spring and a fireworks competition in the summer.

Canal and Domtoren (Dom Tower)

The resort is divided into two areas: the Theme Park Zone which requires paid admission and the Free Zone which can be entered for free. Both zones feature multiple free and paid attractions, although the majority of them are located in the Theme Park Zone. An all-you-can-ride passport is available for most of the attractions in the Theme Park Zone, but it does not cover the paid attractions of the Free Zone.

The Theme Park Zone houses various amusements in the buildings of its reproduced Dutch old town. Many of them are modern theaters featuring 3D technology and the like, including two popular attractions originally found at the Expo 2005 Aichi. Furthermore, there is also a Michael Jackson museum, haunted house, mirror maze, Ferris Wheel and a replica of the Domtoren (Dom Tower) of Utrecht with panoramic views from its observation deck.

The Free Zone's main attractions are a theater and boat ride related to the hit comic series "One Piece" and a replica of the Palace Huis Ten Bosch, which houses an art museum.

Several hotels with a European theme are located around the theme park, including the Hotel Europe with refined restaurants and occasional classical concerts and the Hotel Amsterdam which stands inside the Theme Park zone. Staying guests at the respective hotels are advised to check at the counter for discount tickets to the Theme Park Zone.
