Silversea Luxury Cruises À ABURATSU

The weather is as warm as the welcome in Aburatsu, which sits in a prime position on the southerly Kyushu island of Japan, and offers deserted beaches, rolling ocean and captivating tradition. A place of peace, sanctuary and tranquillity, Aburatsu is an enchanting gateway to the Miyazaki Prefecture’s natural beauty and ornate, forest-clad shrines. Aoshima Island’s lush greenery and fringe of soft sand could belong to a tropical island, but this tiny teardrop of jungled beauty is actually linked to the mainland by a convenient footbridge.

The trees shroud Aoshima Jinja, a Shinto shrine for marriage – learn a little more about Japan’s fascinating marriage traditions by reading our blog [link to The Dagger and the Veil: The Rituals Behind a Traditional Japanese Wedding]. You’ll also see the Devil's Washboard, a rock formation that rises like moulded waves of ploughed sandstone beside the island. The Miyazaki-jingu shrine is dedicated to Japan’s first Emperor - Emperor Jimmu - and is sheltered by aged wisteria trees. The elegant 15th-Century Obi Castle, meanwhile, tells evocative tales of clashing samurai clans. To the north, discover Takachiho Gorge’s stark, basalt cliffs and spectacular narrow waterfalls. The food here is varied and compelling – think tender beef sizzled to perfection on your table or local chicken nanban - crisp, deep fried chicken with a vinegary kick. There’s also fresh lobster to be sampled. Plucked from the waters of the Nichinan coast, it’s served raw to retain its soft texture and complex flavours. A drink of the local potato-distilled Shōchū settles down nicely as the perfect nightcap.

Excursions depuis ABURATSU

Aoshima & Udo Shrine

Experience a pair of the most revered and iconic monuments in south-eastern Japan during this picturesque, half-day excursion to the Aoshima and Udo shrines.


Aburatsu, Miyazaki, Aoshima Island & Shrine, Beautiful Beaches, Rock Formations, Verdant Jungle

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 55-minute drive to Aoshima Island, situated off the coast of Miyazaki. Beautiful beaches, unusual rock formations known as 'Onino Sentakuita' (the Devil's Washboard) and verdant jungle vegetation surround the island, designated as a National Natural Monument. Upon arrival, a visit is made to the island's only structure, the Aoshima Shrine; believed to offer a blessing for couples in love. The origins of the shrine are not known, but it is believed to have been in existence since the 9th-century Heian Period. After centuries of restricted access, the shrine was finally opened to the public in 1737.


Udo Shrine, Cliffside Cave and Spectacular Ocean Views

Following your visit, re-board your coach and continue on for a visit to the Udo Shrine. Dedicated to Yamasachihiko, the father of Emperor Jimmu, mythical first emperor of Japan, this fascinating shrine is set in a cave that clings to the side of a cliff and is famed for its dramatic locale. After exploring the interior of the shrine, step outside onto the terrace for spectacular views of the ocean. According to myth, the rocks that surround the cave nourished Emperor Jimmu when he was a baby. Today, women drink the water that flows between the rocks to increase fertility and ease childbirth. This spot is also thought to be a lucky place for young couples.


Taffy and Clay Target Discs for Sale

Taffy made from this water is available for purchase, as are small clay discs that are thrown at a target between the peaks of a nearby island for good luck. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach for the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.1 miles (about 1.8 kilometres), at times over uneven, gravel and cobblestone surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 20 steps at the Aoshima Shrine and 200 steps at the Udo Shrine. 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. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
