Japan (Feb 2012) Day 13: Huis Ten Bosch (Part 1)
On this day, we took a train (Ltd Exp Huis Ten Bosch) from Hakata station to Huis Ten Bosch station.
Huis Ten Bosch is a Holland-themed large Theme Park that is located in Nagasaki Prefecture.
We will be staying 1 night at ANA Huis Ten Bosch Hotel, which is located between Huis Ten Bosch station and Huis Ten Bosch themepark's entrance.
2 main reasons why we have been looking forward to this visit.
1) There's a Miffy shop in the park that I have been dreaming of.
2) There's the anime/manga One Piece's theme attractions in the themepark (which is not permanent) which is the main reason I was able to convince my hubby to go on this particular Japan trip. :)
One Piece fans, don't miss out my post for Day 14 where we took the cruise onboard Thousand Sunny. Yes, it's an actual ship that really sails. :)
