Silversea Expedition Cruises A Hokkaidō (Otaru)

Hokkaidō (Otaru)

Otaru is a small harbor city west of Sapporo. Famous for its many hills and a nearby ski resort, the town has been an important trade and herring fishing center.

Programmes d’excursions à terre depuis Hokkaidō (Otaru)

4NT PRE-CRUISE: LAKE AKAN & THE CRANES OF KUSHIRO

Immerse yourself in the great natural sites of Hokkaido. Trek in Kushiro Marshland National Park. Two thousand spectacular varieties of animals and plants thrive here in Japan's largest marshland, which supports the only population of endangered Japanese cranes in Japan. Designated as a Special Natural Living Treasure, the endangered, red-crested cranes known as "Tancho-zuru" roam freely in a beautiful Reserve dedicated to their preservation.


Please note: guests should schedule flights into Tokyo's Narita Airport to begin this program.


Please check with your travel professional for details regarding visa requirements for Japan. It is the responsibility of the guest to obtain the appropriate visas before your cruise.


DAY 1 - ARRIVE TOKYO

Arriving at Tokyo's Narita Airport, you are met and transferred to the magnificent Imperial Hotel, where royalty and celebrities have been welcomed for over 100 years. Your room Is reserved for the night before, so you can check in immediately. The local representative or the hotel's concierge can assist with plans for the day. The balance of the day, including lunch and dinner are at your leisure.


Overnight at the Imperial Hotel - Tokyo



DAY 2 - TOKYO / LAKE AKAN

An early check-out starts you on your way to Haneda airport for the flight to Kushiro where your Hokkaido tour starts. Once in Kushiro, transfer to the Kushiro Marshland, the largest marshland in the country. Embrace the spectacular natural beauty of the Marshland during an approximate 5 hour walking tour on the Onnenai Boardwalk. This wooden walkway stretches through the swamp. The Marshland is also home to about 600 plant species, and offers habitats for the Japanese crane and other migratory birds. During your walking tour led by a local nature guide, see flowers from the Ice Age found only in eastern Hokkaido, a variety of alpine plants and northern animals, and the distinctive seasonal changes of the region.


Following your walking tour, stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing on to visit the Japanese Crane Reserve. Nearly extinct during the Meiji Era due to over-hunting and environmental changes, the species rebounded when approximately 10 surviving cranes were discovered in the Kushiro-Marshland area about 70 years ago. Farmers fed them in the winter months when food was scarce, and the numbers of Japanese cranes have proliferated ever since. This Crane Reserve is also a shelter for injured Japanese Crane.


Leaving the Reserve, drive along Lake Akan toward your hotel. As the panoramic views of Lake Akan and Mt.Oakandake unfold right in front of your eyes, relax as you take a moment to gaze at the lush natural surroundings. Enjoy a buffet style dinner and Japanese Onsen (hot springs) at the hotel to soak away your fatigue.


Overnight at the Tsuruga Wings Hotel - Lake Akan


DAY 3 - LAKE AKAN / SAPPORO

Enjoy breakfast before checking out and departing the hotel for the scenic drive to Lake Mashu. The world's most transparent lake, Mashu features beautiful, emerald-coloured surfaces that change from moment-to-moment and are always covered by mist. The Ainu people have revered this lake as the 'Lake of the Gods' since ancient times. Although a visit to the lakeshore is not permitted, splendid views are available from the observatories.


Continue to Iouzan, an active volcano on Mount Iou, or 'Sulphur Mountain'. Upon arrival, you can stroll around the steaming and smoking area, where yellow, sulphurous vents can be viewed from up close. A few walking trails here are ideal for a pleasant stroll around the mountain. Eggs, cooked by the natural heat of the volcano, are usually on sale near the vents. A short drive takes you to the local restaurant where a Japanese style lunch is waiting for you.


After lunch, transfer to Memambetsu Airport and take a flight to Sapporo where you will spend the last night before getting onboard ship. Enjoy the evening and dinner on your own in Hokkaido's capital city, Sapporo.


Overnight at JR Tower Hotel Nikko Sapporo - Sapporo


DAY 4 - SAPPORO / OTARU / EMBARKATION

Following breakfast this morning, check-out of the hotel and begin your transfer to Otaru. Stop by several popular sightseeing spots along the way. One of your first visits is to the former Aoyama Villa or the Nishin Goten (Herring Mansion). During the Meiji and Taisho eras, herring fisheries prospered, making many owners quite successful. The villa was the home of an Otaru herring fishery boss and was constructed in 1922 over the course of six years. The miyadaiku (carpenters specializing in shrines and temples) worked painstakingly to create this lavish two-story wooden structure. Step inside and admire the finely lacquered floors, the gleaming whitewashed walls, and zelkova (an Asian tree) corridors. Note the intricacy of the sliding doors, which are adorned with the works of the premiere painters and calligraphers of the day.


Then drive to Otaru canal and shopping area, a historic mile-long canal that provides both a nostalgic look at the Otaru of yesteryear as well as a unique shopping and dining experience. Once the capital of Hokkaido in Japan's Meiji Period, Otaru was known as the "Sakhalin of Japan" for its busy maritime trade with Russia. The canal was created by a sea reclamation project started in 1914, and the store warehouses that you see were built during this period. They have been beautifully preserved and are an iconic and much photographed landmark in the city. Along the canal, you will find a gaslight-lined promenade brimming with fancy shops, boutiques and restaurants.


Enjoy lunch on your own in this unique setting before embarkation. Bon voyage!
