Silversea Luxury Cruises A Nagoya

Nagoya

Nagoya rose to power as a castle town during the feudal age. Three of Japan’s great historic heroes were born here or nearby. Oda Nobunaga who seized power from the imperial court in Kyoto in 1568; Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Oda’s most able commander who extended unification until the whole country was under his rule; and Tokugawa Ieyasu who built Nagoya Castle, then set up his field headquarters at Edo (now Tokyo) and assumed the title of shogun, while the emperor and court in Kyoto exercised authority in name only.

Today, Nagoya is Japan’s fourth largest city and a commercial and industrial centre. Its inhabitants are known for their outrageously lavish weddings and love of pachinko (a pinball type of game played in a brightly lit and garish pachinko parlour). The city has recently made a concerted effort to draw more visitors, and the new Nagoya Public Aquarium is a popular attraction, along with the Port Tower, which offers scenic views of the harbour. With excellent restaurants and lively entertainment, Nagoya offers many amenities of a large city with decidedly less chaos and confusion.

Excursions depuis Nagoya

The Best of Nagoya

Discover the legacy of Nagoya, capital of the Aichi Prefecture, during this scenic, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Atsuta Shrine

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 30-minute drive to the Atsuta Shrine. Located around the centre of Nagoya, this ancient shrine draws nine million visitors annually, remains one of the great centres of worship in Japan and is the most important Shinto shrine after the Ise Grand Shrines. The Atsuta Shrine is also noted in the 'Kojiki', Japan's oldest history, compiled in the 8th century. It is the repository of the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (Grass-Mowing Sword). Together with the Jewels at the Imperial Palace and the Mirror at the Ise Grand Shrines, it constitutes the Three Imperial Regalia. During your guided tour, visit the shrine's museum, which houses about 4,000 artefacts, including many swords donated because of the shrine's association with the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi.


Osu-Kannon Temple

Next, re -board your coach and head for a visit to the Osu-Kannon Temple. Rebuilt in the 1970s after a fire in 1920 and damage from World War II destroyed sections of it, this famous and beloved temple is a replica of its original design. Prayer flags and red lanterns greet worshippers, and the smell of incense wafts from the main hall. The attractive grounds welcome visitors as well as pigeons, who are kept well-fed by guests and locals.


Nagoya Castle Hommaru Palace

The Hommaru Palace was once located on the south side of the Nagoya Castle donjon, and regarded as the finest masterpiece of modern castle architecture in Japan. Along with the Ninomaru Palace at Nijo Castle in Kyoto, which is designated a National Treasure, the Hommaru Palace was considered to be the preeminent example of Samurai-style Shoin palace architecture. The walls and partitions inside the Hommaru Palace were painted according to a different theme for each room by masters such as Kano Sadanobu and Kano Tanyu of the Kano School, the greatest school of painting in the history of Japanese-style painting. Thus, the palace was magnificently awash with colour. Its reconstruction began in 2009, and is scheduled to reopen in June 2018.


Lunch and Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry & Technology

Leaving the castle, re-board your coach and proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, your last stop is the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry & Technology. Founded by 13 companies of the Toyota Corporation, the museum exhibits the mechanics of industry from textiles to automobiles through actual equipment. The purpose is to help you understand the importance and excitement of 'making things' and 'creativity and research'. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.1 miles (about 1.76 kilometres), at times over uneven and gravel surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 10 steps at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry & Technology, 30 steps at the Hommaru Palace, and 60 steps at Atsuta Shrine. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and sunglasses from the ship to protect their eyes from ash particles that may be present. Guests must remove their shoes before entering the Nagoya Castle Hommaru Palace. The Nagoya Castle's main keep is scheduled to be reconstructed by 2022. The current main keep is expected to be torn down in 2019, and will be closed to the public beginning May 7, 2018. Japanese Yen is required for any purchases. The tour sequence may vary.

Inuyama Castle & Meijimura Museum

Explore the history, architecture and castles of Japan during this picturesque, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Meijimura Museum

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 70-minute drive to the Meijimura Museum. One of Japan's several outstanding open air museums, the Meijimura Museum displays over 60 buildings from the Meiji Period. The Meiji Period (1868-1912) is the time when modern Japan was shaped by opening her doors to the world, and embracing western culture. Few of the buildings constructed in the Meiji Period survive in Japan today, as most of them were destroyed during the war or lost to city redevelopment. A collection of representative buildings from across the country have been relocated to this museum in order to preserve the period's architectural and cultural heritage. The lobby of the Imperial Hotel by U.S. architect Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the famous attractions at the Meijimura Museum.


Lunch and the Inuyama Castle

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, re-board your coach and continue on to the nearby city of Inuyama, located in the Aichi Perfecture. Upon arrival, head to the Inuyama Castle, perched atop a small hill adjacent to the Kiso River. Originally constructed in 1537, the Inuyama Castle and its donjon are among the oldest extant in Japan. The castle is one of only 12 original castles remaining in Japan, and also one of only five castles whose main keeps have been designated as National Treasures.


Guided Castle Tour

Upon arrival at the Inuyama Castle, take a guided walking tour. The main keep's structure is built almost entirely of wood and rocks. Its interior is beautifully preserved, and retains an authentic feel without modern additions. The first floor of the castle contains a storage room, and a room for the lord of the castle. The second floor is the castle's armoury. It has wooden shelves for storing weapons and an approximately 11.8-foot-wide (about 3.6-metre-wide) corridor surrounding the room, which is known as musha-bashiri (warriors running). The third floor is divided into two rooms, the Hafu-no-ma and Kara-hafu. The fourth and final floor is surrounded by a viewing balcony. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 85-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.6 miles (2.56 kilometres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 60 steps at Meijimura Museum, and 100 steps (with 60 steep steps) at the Inuyama Castle. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Japanese yen is required for any purchases: guests are advised to exchange money at the airport prior the cruise. The view from the Inuyama Castle depends on the weather. Guests must remove their shoes before entering the castle. The tour sequence may vary.
