When one has the habit of arriving the train platform just minutes before the train departs, it is imperative that our watch is synchronised to train station's time. ^^
Day 5 : Huis Ten Bosch. Got on board the train just seconds before it departs. Same thing happen when we took the LEX Okayama to Matsuyama. heh
We went to this recreation of the Huis Ten Bosch in Netherlands theme park, located in Nagasaki Prefecture. Raimie had requested a visit there for his birthday present. As a trade-off, he agreed to cancel the trip to Ultramanland in Kumamoto for this.
The view inside the Dutch theme park. One can almost be forgiven for mistaking us being somewhere other than Japan.
Since our main reason is for One Piece attractions, that's what and where we made a beeline for. The One Piece attractions, ships and gift shops!
Mommy, Son & Chopper!
The Thousand Sunny ship. We got onboard it (gotta pay up extra for the privilege) to set sailing on it.
Raimie and the ship
Onboard the ship, with Monkey D Luffy
Daddy and his "new girlfriend"
Setting sail. Brrr.... Cold & windy
We didn't spend a whole lot of time there, and went back at 3.00pm, arriving Hakata Station at 5.00ish. We went back to our hotel room and picked up a few stuff, and took a Limited Express train to Moji Station.
We spent a couple of hours eating takoyaki with a blogger friend, Hanny and her Sons. We had planned to only make a short stop there, but I guess when one is with good company, time does flies. Before we knew it, it was almost 11.00pm! Thank you so much to Hanny and her family for putting up with us! If you remember, when we came to this part of town in 2008, Hanny played host to us too!
A near deserted Kokura Station. We were waiting for the shinkansen to arrive for us to get back to Hakata Station.
