Silversea Luxury Cruises À KAGOSHIMA (Kyushu Island)

KAGOSHIMA (Kyushu Island)

Kagoshima city is the capital of Kagoshima prefecture and also Kyushu’s southernmost major city. This city is often compared to its Italian sister city Naples, due to its’s similarities such as mild climate and active volcano, Sakurajima. Sakurajima is one of the most renowned active volcanos not only in Japan but also in the whole entire world. This smoking Sakurajima is centred in Kinko Bay and is one of the main symbols of this prefecture. We cannot talk about Sakurajima without the history of continuous eruption. View more

Sakurajima used to be an isolated island; however, the land has banded together with Osumi peninsula from the eruption in 1914. You may have a chance to see the smoke coming from the top of Sakurajima depending on the weather condition. Not only does the scenery of Sakurajima represent the beauty of Kagoshima City but Senganen garden is also symbolic to elegance in the Kagoshima region. This Japanese garden was constructed by a feudal lord, Mitsuhisa Shimazu, as a guest house of the Kagoshima castle which attracts many visitors for its splendid view.

Ibusuki Sand Bath Japanese Style Experience

(Please acknowledge the 'Important Note' section reported below)

Ibusuki is an onsen town located in southern Kagoshima Prefecture. Unlike other onsen towns in Kyushu, Ibusuki is famous for its sand baths.


Scenic drive & photo stop at Lake Ikeda

Before heading to Sand Bath, make a memorable photo stop at Lake Ikeda which is the biggest volcanic lake in Kyushu, with a circumference of 15 kilometers and a surface area of 11 square km, and a depth of up to 233 meters. The almost round shaped lake is a caldera lake formed more than 6400 years ago because of volcanic activity in the area. Being a caldera lake, there are no rivers flowing in or out of the lake, and is entirely dependent on rainfall to maintain its water level. From Lake Ikeda you can see Mt. Kaimondake, a mountain rising 924 meters above sea level. It is commonly known as the "Fuji of Satsuma".


Ibusuki, Sand bath Experience & Hot Springs

The Sand Bath Experience is the most unique hot springs in the world, as "bathers" are buried in sand, rather than submerged in water. The heat and weight of the sand have an oddly refreshing and cleansing effect.

Upon arrival after the approximately one-hour scenic drive, receive your light Japanese robes „Yukata" and instructions to lie in the volcanic black sand. All but your head will then be covered with steaming sand, which is naturally heated from the underground hot springs. The benefits of being covered in hot sand may include improved blood circulation, detoxification, increased blood-oxygen levels throughout the body and highly valued beauty treatment for the skin. Be prepared to sweat much like you would in a sauna or steam bath, as your pores will quickly open up in the hot sand. Sessions typically last about 15 minutes, after which you will be helped out of the sand and shown to the hot springs to wash off and enjoy the outer bath.


Afterwards, commence your approximately one-hour drive back to the ship.


Important Note:

Japanese hot springs are enjoyed naked. Swimming suits are not allowed. It's permitted to bring a small towel into the bathing area, with which you can enhance your privacy while outside of the water. Once entered the bath, the towel must be kept out of the water. During the sand bath Guests will wear their Yukata only (light Japanese robes) that is provided together with shampoo, conditioner, body soap, face towel, and bath towel. The sanding bath area as well as the hot springs are not privately reserved for Silversea Guests only. The sand bathing area is mixed while the hot springs are separated for female-only and male-only. The use of the Sand Bath is forbidden after the consumption of alcoholic beverages. It's also forbidden for women who are pregnant or during their menstruation period. Photography and video cameras are not permitted inside the sand bath and hot springs.



Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 20 steps at the sand bath. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility. Elevators are not available at the site. Japanese yen is required for any purchases: guests are advised to exchange money at the airport prior the cruise.

Next, re-board your coach and proceed to a local 'kaiten-zushi' restaurant, which offers sushi dishes to its diners on a conveyor belt. Guests can freely pick the dishes they like as they pass in front of them, or order dishes that are not available on the conveyor belt. Usually, the number of plates is counted to determine the cost at the end of the meal; this is how the Kaiten-zushi restaurant works. For this special arrangement, you are asked to pick up (or order) any dishes, and eat as much as you want. Also, observe a demonstration of how fresh is 'broken up', and sit down to a sushi lunch. After lunch, re-board your coach for the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.5 miles (about 0.8 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 50 steps at the sites visited.
