This is a board focussed on "non common stuff to do" in the Netherlands :) Dutch Point of View!
Also I'll be moving to Japan so I went back to say goodbye to my family and friends from 4/15 til 4/28 . Since it was mostly farewell parties and gatherings I didn't go many places but still I'll add some pictures of the places I visited before I left again :) This will basically become a collection of all the places you should visit in The Netherlands!

Most people don't know but the Netherlands is actually also pretty proud of their peanutbutter XD it's totally different from Japanese or American peanutbutter. It's more peanut-y and less sugary. It's super yummy to combine with a bit of honey or chocolate sprinkles (hagelslag)!

  • Loved to be there!

独立革命と言えばアメリカが有名ですが、オランダがスペインから独立したのは16世紀(関ヶ原の戦いよりも前)。以来、鎖国をしていた日本と唯一交易を許されていた国として、日本と深い関係を持っていました。鎖国をしつつも日本にとってオランダは西欧情勢を知る唯一の情報源だったそうです。ライデン大学の日本語学科は毎年日本と交流をしており、今でも日本とオランダの関係は途切れていません。街の中心には、スペインとの戦争の時に市民が立てこもった要塞跡地があります。…こんな小さなところでよく持ちこたえたなと言うのが正直な印象です。でも、その歴史の上にオランダと日本の関係が築かれてきたのだと思うと、じんわり思うところがあります。 ライデンには、ドイツ人だったシーボルトの持ち帰った日本の品々が保管してあるシーボルトハウスがあります。シーボルトが日本追放の原因にもなった地図のコレクションも見ることができます。地図マニアにはたまらない場所です。その他にも、ミニチュアや、日本の博物館等ではあまりお目にかかれない、日本の庶民の品々を見ることができます。
