Pirates!

Who would travel all the way to Sasebo City in Kyushu just to get onboard a pirate ship? We would! It's a birthday present. Raimie's 9th birthday present to be exact. We didn't plan to make a return visit to Huis Ten Bosch; which is where you can find this ship - the Thousand Sunny but saw an ad of the theme park with One Piece attraction prominently displayed when we went to HIS Travel to buy our JR Pass before our trip in Nov-Dec of last year.
Raimie asked us whether he could get a trip to see the ship and all the One Piece characters as his birthday present instead of us going to Ultramanland and we obliged. Can't say no, when he asked ever so nicely, can I? ^^
We met Chopper and of course who can resist a hug with Chopper?
or Luffy?
Scary Kuma
Trafalgar and Captain Kid
Sanji
Usopp!
 Daddy and his "girlfriend" Nami
Brook (sure sounds like my running shoe brand. heh heh)
And lastly Franky

It was a really nice birthday present for any One Piece fan, going to Huis Ten Bosch, got onboard the Thousand Sunny ship and take photos with the characters (statues, but hey! Whose complaining?), don't you think? ^^

On a totally unrelated connection to pirates -
 Is this the same "mother-child" statues as the one is your post, Rurousha? The angle of your photos made me thought it wasn't at first.

I love how serene the mother looks like and how adoringly the older child look up to his/her mom and the little one was happily and blissfully sleeping. :)

    1. Nice presents don't make great parents. xD

      He earned the birthday present. He is a good boy. He is a good student.

      We are blessed for it. ^^

  5. Pirates! I've been waiting for this one. What a fun place for a birthday! Dad seems rather satisfied, too! :D

    Yes, it's the same statue in our photos. She does have a lovely serene face, doesn't she?

    Is that a very young Raimie sitting at her feet? (^o^)

  6. Hi Lina, I just found that there is a Kid Zania in KL. Maybe you have been there before?

    1. It's only recently opened and only have a few jobs. It is getting a lot of interest from parents (and from those who have kids and used to study in Japan) - the queue for the jobs are long! @,@ And this being Malaysia, parents and kids can be rather pushy. ^^!

      Raimie has been asking when he can go but we'll wait until the initial excitement died down and more jobs are available before taking him there. ^^

    1. I guess so.

      But a paradise for a child who is a fan of One Piece animation. This is no Disneyland. There are not much One Piece related rides there. The main attraction is the ship. ^^

  13. Hello, I got your blog from Google searching about Huis Ten Bosch. I guess you guys did have some fun time and I did enjoy your blog. I will be visiting Japan in next couple of months and I have something to ask about Huis Ten Bosch. If I want to visit only the One Piece attraction (at Free Zone), what ticket should I buy? I read the explanation park website and still don't get it. I also sent an inquiry to international sales of Huis Ten Bosch but they didn't give a satisfying answer, maybe you could help.

    Do I need to buy the Toku-Toku 1 Day ticket (5700 yen) or I just need to buy the park entrance ticket (3200 yen), because I have a tight budget on the trip. What ticket did you buy last time?

    Sorry for a long question, thank you so much :)
