There’s a little Netherlands in Nagasaki and in spring it transforms itself into a tulip paradise.
Tip: Extend your stay by staying overnight at the park at the magical Huis Ten Bosch Hotel Europe.
There will be several sections in the theme park Huis Ten Bosch that celebrate the flower. Jump on the swing for two at Flower Road, grab some ice cream in Flower Square, feel like royalty at the palace, and enjoy the illuminated tulips at night.
You will have to pay for an admissions ticket to see the tulips. Adult prices start at ¥4,000 for access to the park after 5 p.m., ¥5,000 for access after 3 p.m., and ¥7,000 for a day passport. Get your tickets here.
