On August 8th, 2013 the JASC 65 delegation visited Huis Ten Bosch, a Dutch-themed amusement park near Nagasaki, Japan. Huis Ten Bosch means “House in the forest.” True to its name this residential-style resort has canals running throughout, is surrounded by greenery, forests, amusements, shops, restaurants, five distinct hotels, a marina and residential area.
The main purpose of the trip was to learn about the park’s eco-friendly design. JASCers were given a tour of the facilities that power the park as well as provide clean, desalinated water. After the tour, JASCers were allotted some free time to wander the park grounds.
