Nagasaki Port Hoorn Changes Name

On Nov. 27 it was announced that Port Hoorn in Saikai City (Nagasaki Prefecture) changed its name. The leisure facility will now be known as Nagasaki Holland Mura (village) and will start staging events such as movie screenings, performances from young artists, light-up events, as well as various workshops from Dec. 16. Admission will remain free, but visitors will be required to pay for using different facilities within the premises. Refurbishments have been made to the grounds, including a movie theater that is accessible for as little as ¥500. The management hopes to welcome approximately 300,000 customers next year and draw in a revenue of ¥300 million in the region. Duty free shops for international tourists were also opened in a bid to try and boost business. Source: Sankei Shimbun, 11/27/2017
