Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach HIROSHIMA

HIROSHIMA

History buffs will want to write home Hiroshima. Despite being devastated in 1945, this Japanese city is known to all for its commitment peace – its ruin on the 6th August 1945 led to the end of the war and today, the Peace Memorial (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) , is a constant reminder of the destruction that war brings. A walk in the leafy boulevards of Peace Memorial Park brings quiet contemplation. View more

The Flames of Peace – set in the park’s central feature pond – burn brightly and will continue to do so until all the nuclear bombs I the world have been destroyed. There are many other inspiring messages of hope around the city too; the Children’s’ Peace Monument just north of the park is a homage to little Sadako Sasaki, who was just two in 1945. When she developed leukemia in 1956, she believed that if she folded 1,000 paper cranes – a symbol of longevity and happiness in Japan – she would recover. Sadly she died before she finished her task but her classmates finished the rest. If you are lucky enough to visit during the unpredictable and short-lived Sakura (cherry blossom) season, then the extraordinary sight of the delicate pink blossom floating across the water to the red gate, means you can consider yourself one of the luckiest people on the planet. It is impossible to ignore the events of 1945 in Hiroshima, but this is far from a depressing place. The great efforts that have been made in rebuilding of the city over the years have given Hiroshima a vibrant, eclectic edge, with the downtown shopping area and street food stalls being well worth a visit. The proximity to Miyajima and its iconic, impressive, Torii gate should not be overlooked either. If you are lucky enough to visit during the unpredictable and short-lived Sakura (cherry blossom) season, then the extraordinary sight of the delicate pink blossom floating across the water to the red gate, means you can consider yourself one of the luckiest people on the planet.

Exkursionen in HIROSHIMA

Art of the Japanese Brush

Kumano is the capital of brushes (fude) and produces 80% of the brushes made in Japan for painting, writing and cosmetics. However, none of the materials used to make the brushes come from this town. Kumano has an interesting history for this successful industry. A long time ago, the farmers used to buy brushes and ink from Nara and sell them to the locals in order to earn extra income after harvesting rice. The Hiroshima local government encouraged this activity and Kumano began making brushes eventually as well. Later, Japanese Calligraphy was introduced as a school subject, and the increased demand for brushes brought stability to the industry in Kumano.

Board you coach at the pier and commence the approximately 45-minute journey to the Fudenosato Kobo Museum, which plays a central role in presenting the local characteristics that go into the brushes. After visiting the museum and exhibitions, you can try using the Kumano brushes yourself. On a large white Japanese traditional paper, you can draw words or anything that inspires you. After completing your art, the paper will be made into a hanging scroll that you can bring home to use as a decoration. At the end, you can enjoy shopping in the Kumanofude select shop main store, which offers a selection of more than 1,500 kinds of fude (brushes).

At the end of your visit re-board your coach for the journey back to the pier and your awaiting ship.

Depart from the pier, and after a short drive arrive to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in central Hiroshima. The area where the park now lies was ground zero for the Atomic Bomb on 6th August 1945. After the bombing, the Memorial Park was created and dedicated to those who lost their lives in the attack. Stroll through the park and discover many memorials, monuments and statues, before heading into the Museum itself. The park's main attraction is the Peace Memorial Museum. Consisting of two buildings, the museum surveys the history of Hiroshima and the advent of the nuclear bomb. Its focus though is on the events of Aug.6, 1945 - the dropping of the bomb and its outcome on human suffering. After the visit to the museum, you will be transferred to a local restaurant for a Japanese set-menu lunch.


Next, you're taken to the public ferry terminal where a ferry carries you to mysterious Miyajima Island to discover the majestic Itsukushima-jinja Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the picturesque landscape of the Island of Itsukushima, and tour its "floating" Shinto shrine. The present structure dates to the mid-16th century and is an important Shinto shrine. Its dramatic 50-foot-tall, red orange torii gate is distinctive-built over water and giving the illusion of floating in the sea during high tide. Built on pillars, the shrine complex consists of multiple buildings, including a prayer hall and a main hall, which are all connected by boardwalks. There is also a Noh theater stage, where plays that paid homage to the gods were once performed. To your surprise, there are many wild deer walking in the island. After admiring its unique shrine and drowsy creatures, enjoy some time to explore the island at your leisure before embarking the public ferry and returning to your ship.

Hiroshima Castle & Garden

Experience the beauty and tranquility of an Edo Period Castle and garden in Hiroshima. Hiroshima Castle, a flatlands fortress built by a powerful Samurai Clan in 1589. The castle's five-story main keep was destroyed by the atomic bomb at the end of World War II in 1945 and reconstructed in 1958, and today houses a shrine, ruins and a section of defensive fortifications. It is hard to climb up to the top of the castle, but it is rewarding when you are greeted by the panoramic view of the City. Later, visit Shukkei-en Garden, literally translated as "shrunk scenery garden." As its name says It gives you an image of miniature natural formation. The garden was built after the Hiroshima Castle, which you can trace back to 1620. The charming miniature forests, valleys and mountain landscapes is definitely refreshing and peaceful. Take a leisurely stroll along its winding garden paths surrounded by the central pond.


After the walk in the garden, re-board your coach and commence the approximately half hour drive back to the ship through some residential and business district of Hiroshima.

First, after a short transfer board the public ferry for the short trip to mysterious Miyajima Island and discover the majestic Itsukushima-jinja Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the picturesque landscape of the island of Itsukushima, and tour its "floating" Shinto Shrine. The present structure dates to the mid-16th century and is an important Shinto Shrine.

There is also a Noh Theater Stage, where plays that paid homage to the gods were once performed. To your surprise, there are many wild deer walking in the island. After admiring its unique shrine and drowsy creatures, enjoy some time to explore the island at your leisure before embarking your ferry and returning to your ship.

Peace Memorial Park & Museum

Today you are transferred to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park & Museum where you will witness the miraculous, decades-long recovery of Hiroshima, giving you inspiration from its remarkable restoration.


Drive with your guide into the heart of the City, stopping to view the skeletal remains of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The hall's hollowed dome, appropriately called the Atomic Bomb Dome, was intentionally left in ruins as a stark visual reminder of the bomb's destruction. It was the only building that was left standing close to the hypocenter of the bomb's blast. Stop at the arched tomb cenotaph and take a moment to remember the victims of the bomb. Each one of the 220,000 victims' names are inscribed on the stone chest beneath the arch. The museum consists of two building and exhibit the history of Hiroshima and the day of the nuclear bomb.
