Photos: Huis Ten Bosch in Nagasaki Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan

"Huis Ten Bosch" is a wonderful theme park representing Kyushu in Japan. But it's not "Japan", it's "Netherlands". Japan has learned Western technology and culture from the Netherlands, even in the isolation era. Due to this long friendship, a huge theme park was opened in Sasebo, Nagasaki Prefecture, where you can enjoy real Dutch streets. If you travel in Kyushu, please enjoy Huis Ten Bosch.

Photos: Gunkanjima Island in Nagasaki Prefecture

This is not a warship. This is a small island "Gunkanjima" located in western Kyushu. Once upon a time, coal was produced around Gunkanjima. Many miners and their families lived there. Even today, Japan's first high-rise houses are left. The island is currently registered as a World Heritage Site. To go to Gunkanjima, I recommend taking a tour from Nagasaki Port.
