It has diverse sightseeing spots that include, Oura Church, the oldest church in existence in Japan, Nagasaki Chinatown, Hashima (Battleship Island), which once prospered in undersea coal mining, and its attractive outlying islands.
Huis Ten Bosch is not just a reproduction of a cityscape in the Netherlands, but is a place where you can also enjoy a wide range of attractions such as flowers, light displays, games, music, and health and wellness.
