Huis Ten Bosch theme park

The hotel is part of the Huis Ten Bosch theme park complex located in Sasebo which recreates the Netherlands by displaying real size copies of old Dutch buildings.  The park features many Dutch-style buildings such as hotels, villas, theaters, museums, shops and restaurants, along with canals, windmills, amusement rides, and a park planted in seasonal flowers.  The theme park which opened in 1992 is located on Hario Island in the southern part of Sasebo.  Its location reflects the historical relations between the Netherlands and Japan, which began in 1609 when a trading post was opened by the Dutch in Hirado, not far from Sasebo.  Find out more about Huis Ten Bosch from their website: http://english.huistenbosch.co.jp/
