Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Aburatsu

Located on the south eastern side of Japan, Aburatsu is a tiny port that packs a big punch. More commonly known under the name of Miyazaki – the region where Aburatsu is found, the clement weather and fortuitous topography give Aburatsu a feeling of being on permanent holiday. Visitors should expect along with warm weather a warm welcome from the locals with samples of local culture – such as the traditional Nichinan Taihei dance being performed and bites of exquisite gastronomy for the more adventurous as soon as you disembark.

Venturing further afield and one discovers an atypical town that is light years away from the Japan of the future that one might associate other parts of the country with.

On the do not miss list should be first and foremost Aoshima, a tiny island of just 1.50km in circumference, connected to the mainland by a 300-metre long bridge. Not to be confused with an identically named island in Ehime Prefecture which is known for its cat population, those with allergies to felines need not worry! Celebrated for its lush vegetation, the island is ringed with white sandy beaches and shallow waters. At the center of the island is Aoshima Jinja, a colorful shrine set back in the jungle that is said to bring luck to married couples. Surrounded at low tide by the geological phenomenon known as Oni no Sentakuita (eroded sandstone and shale boulders) that protrude from the sea between the waves, the straight rows of basalt rock look man made. Because of this, Aoshima is designated a National Natural Monument. Finally, Obi Castletown is a definite must see. A highly impressive traditional castle, the gardens have a cherry tree orchard that is a fine example of Sakura, should you be lucky enough to visit in Spring.

Aoshima & Udo Shrine

Your day begins with a scenic drive, as you travel by motorcoach from port to the must-see destination Aoshima Shrine; believed to offer a blessing for couples in love. Beautiful beaches, as well as the unusual rock formations known as Onino Sentakuita, which means "the devil's washboard," and jungle vegetation surround the island. The origins of the shrine are not known, but it is believed to have been in existence since the Heian Period, and after centuries of restricted access, the shrine was opened to the public in 1737.

Your next stop is Udo Shrine was set inside a grotto created by waves, perched at the top of a staircase that runs along the rock face. The bright red Udo Jingu was built in the 1st century B.C. and has commanded this cliff-side spot overlooking the ocean ever since. It is dedicated to Yamasachihiko, the father of Emperor Jimmu, the legendary first emperor of Japan. This very unusual cave setting is part of the shrine's mythology, and one story has it that the breast-shaped rocks nourished Emperor Jimmu when he was a baby. Today, some women drink the water that flows between the rocks to increase fertility and to be beneficial during childbirth. This spot is also thought to be a lucky place for young couples. After exploring the interior of the shrine, step outside onto the terrace for spectacular views of the ocean. If you look down at the rocks below, you will see a target, marked by rope, onto which people can try to throw discs. You can purchase these ceramic undama for a small fee and try your hand at hitting the target. Men throw with the left hand and women with the right. If you hit the target, you will have good luck!

Following your visit, commence the approximate 20-minute drive back to the pier
