- Huis Ten Bosch
The concept of striking a mutually harmonious balance between ecology and economy at Huis Ten Bosch – a theme park that recreates the streetscape of seventeenth-century Holland, has resulted in the planting of several hundred thousand trees and plants. Huis Ten Bosch offers visitors amusement facilities, restaurants, hotels, and plenty of other attractions.
- Sasebo Burger (hamburger)
The Sasebo Burger is a hamburger that was first produced around 1950 based on a recipe taught directly by the U.S. Navy. It then evolved into a hamburger with a distinct Sasebo style and continues to be made with a thorough commitment to the virtues of homemade preparation. Come and sample a local delicacy that has become a veritable gastronomical tradition in Sasebo.
