Travel Tips for Sasebo
Palace Huis ten Bosch
Paleis Huis Ten Bosch the replica of the residence of the Queen of the Netherlands. Inside the palace is a museum of Dutch culture and art, as well as facilities serving as a local campus for Holland's Leiden University. Visitors can also enjoy a walk through the palace's garden, which is laid out in 18th century style.
Kashimae Bay Shrine
It's another shrine around the Sasebo area. It's not very big at all. I'm guessing people go there to wish for good luck when they go fishing. It looks like the God's at this shrine are a little thirsty since there are a good amount of empty beer bottles laying around.
Three Memorable Years...
Sasebo occupies three years of interesting memories from me. From the moment I arrived in town by van from Fuk Airport on a late Thursday night, through countless seasonal festivals accompanied by some hard partying I may or may not remember, to my blowout departure on a Sunday morning three years later, I couldn't forget it even if I wanted to, not that I would.
