Silversea Luxury Cruises A Nagasaki

Nagasaki

Nagasaki city has developed into one of the most important port cities in Japan. During Japan’s period of isolation in the 17th century, Nagasaki played a prominent role in foreign trade relation and only a very few ports were open to restricted numbers of foreign traders. Even though Holland was a major country who conducted trading during this period, Dutch people were only allowed to stay in Dejima Island and were not allowed to have contact with the Japanese people.

Today, you will still find the strong influence of Dutch and Chinese culture in the city which is very different from all other cities in Japan. In the more recent history, Nagasaki became the second city after Hiroshima to be destroyed by an atomic bomb towards the end of World War II. From the visit to Atomic bomb museum and peace memorial park, people could understand how chaotic the situation was and the agony that the people in the days have experienced from the damage inflicted by the atomic bomb. It continues to appeal to the world with their wish for world peace.

You will journey on the JR limited Express train to Fukuoka (Hakata). After an overnight stay, a ride on the Bullet Train takes you to legendary Kyoto for a visit of its historic treasures, including the Kinkakuji Temple and Nijo Castle. The next morning, you are invited to attend a Tea Ceremony and slip into a kimono for picture taking. Finally, stop at Nara and explore the sites of this former capital before rejoining ship.


This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires advance booking through Silversea Reservations by February 9, 2012. Payment in full is due within 120 days prior to sailing. Requests received after this date are on a space available basis and may not be accommodated. This programme is non-refundable if cancelled within 90 days of sailing.


DAY ONE - Friday, April 20, 2012 - Nagasaki/Hakata

Depart the ship after lunch and transfer to the Nagasaki train station. Board the JR Limited Express for the two-hour ride to Fukuoka. Upon arrival at Fukuoka's Hakata station, a short transfer will take you to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. This luxury hotel is connected to Canal City, a huge complex of entertainment, business and shopping facilities. After check-in, there is time to freshen up before a Western-style dinner is served at the hotel.

DAY TWO - Saturday, April 21, 2012 - Hakata/Kyoto

After breakfast and check out, return to the train station and continue your rail journey via the Super Express (Bullet Train) to Kyoto. In less than three hours you will arrive in this legendary city, where a Western-style lunch awaits at one of Kyoto's fine restaurants.


World-famous Kyoto, recognised by UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage Site, was founded in 794 as the imperial capital of Japan. It is renowned for its many historic wooden monuments, temples, shrines, traditional Japanese gardens and an age-old Geisha culture. In 1868, the capital was transferred to Tokyo along with the emperor's residence. Due to its historic value, Kyoto was spared from bombing raids during World War II. As a result, its numerous temples and other priceless structures have remained intact. Your sightseeing tour includes the Kinkakuji Temple (also known as the Golden Pavilion) and Nijo Castle. Nijo Castle, built in 1603 by the first shogun of the Edo government, is famous for its Momoyama architecture, decorated sliding doors and floors that squeak when tread upon, once a security measure against intruders. The Golden Pavilion is amongst Kyoto's best known attractions, situated in a serene, park-like setting.


Following your visits, arrive at the Kyoto Hotel Okura for check-in. This luxury 16-story hotel is one of the finest traditional hotels in Kyoto. Take in the lavish décor of the spacious lobby and relax in your beautifully appointed room. This evening enjoy a Tepanyaki dinner at one of the hotel's acclaimed restaurants.

DAY THREE - Sunday, April 22, 2012 - Kyoto/Nara/Osaka

After breakfast and check out, learn about some of Japan's age-old traditions during a Tea Ceremony, followed by donning a Kinagasyi kimono for a memorable photo opportunity. At the end of this cultural experience, proceed to a hotel restaurant for a buffet lunch of Japanese and Western dishes.


After lunch, depart Kyoto and travel by coach to Nara, Japan's ancient capital that abounds with archaeological sites and cultural heritage. Nara's historical monuments were inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1998. Visit its most famous attractions, the Todaiji Temple and Kasuga Shrine. The Todaiji Temple, constructed in 752 and a landmark of Nara, is said to house the largest bronze Buddha statue in the world. From Todaiji Temple, a short drive brings you to the Kasuga Shrine. Founded in the 8th century, it was the royal shrine of the Fujiwara Family. Mostly all of Japanese empresses hailed from this family, ensuring the shrine a privileged status.


Leaving Nara, this memorable Japanese Sojourn concludes with a one and a half hour drive to Osaka, where the ship awaits your return.
