Silversea Luxury Cruises A KANAZAWA

KANAZAWA

The capital of the Ishikawa Prefecture, Kanazawa once rivalled Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo) as a town rich in cultural achievements. Kanazawa escaped destruction during World War II and accordingly has been able to preserve many of the old districts in good shape. The city is famous because of Kenrokuen. Located next to Kanazawa Castle, Kenrokuen is classified as “One of the Three Gardens of Japan”. The garden has an artificial pond, and hills and houses are dotted within the 11.4 hectares.

It has Japan’s oldest fountain using natural water pressure and a tea-house dating back to 1774. Close by is the Higashi Chaya Gai Geisha District, designated a National Cultural Asset and the biggest of the Geisha districts of Kanazawa. Some of the houses not only retain the original structure, but still are used as Geisha houses. Some of the streets have traditional shops creating a nostalgic atmosphere. Kanazawa is also known for its lacquer ware, Kutani-style pottery, gold-leaf workmanship and delicately painted silk kimonos.

UNESCO World Heritage Villages of Shirakawago & Gokayama

Experience the rich architectural traditions of the Japanese countryside on a tour including two of the region's most picturesque villages. Shirakawago widely-known as one of the most scenic places in Japan, is surrounded by dramatic pine tree-covered mountains.


After an approximately 90 minutes journey, arrive to Shirakawago Village. Here you'll find the unique Japanese thatched-roof farmhouses that are the center of attention. There are approximately 90 thatched farmhouses, sheds, and barns built about 200-300 years ago that were added to UNESCO'S World Heritage List in 1995. They are examples of the Gassho-zukuri style, a form of construction that resembles hands-clasped in prayer.


Aesthetically pleasing, the steeply pitched roofs are extremely practical during the heavy snowstorms of the Shokawa River valley. Pitched at 60 degrees and oriented along a north-south axis, the farmhouses are able to more efficiently capture sunlight and shed weighty burdens. Today, you will enter one of the farmhouse, Wada Family's House. Wada family take important role in Shirakawa-mura and was elected the first village mayor in Meiji Period. Located in the northern part of the Ogimachi, three stray farm houses including living room, guest room, family's room and store house. After your guided tour you'll be given some free time in the village, then at an appointed time re-board the coach and your tour continues to Gokayama. Prior arrival you'll be taken to a local restaurant for a Japanese mountain style set-menu lunch. After lunch an approximately half hour drive will take you to Gokayama Washinosato.


Like Shirakawago, Gokayama earned its place as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1995 and boasts the same style of Gassho-zukuri pitched-roof construction. Arriving in this charming village, you'll proceed to a special site where you'll be treated to fascinating demonstrations of the art of Japanese paper making. Known as washi, the process of creation is long and involved and that often undertaken in the depth of winter. The cold weather inhibits bacteria, prevents decomposition, makes the fibers contract for a crisp feel, and provides farmers with a source of winter income.

The kozo tree, or paper mulberry, is the most commonly used fiber in making Japanese paper. The kozo branches are boiled and stripped of their outer bark, and then dried. The fibers are then boiled with lye to remove the starch, fat and tannin and any remaining impurities in the fibers are picked out by hand. The kozo is laid on a rock or board and beaten. Wet balls of pulp are mixed in a vat with water and one of two traditional methods of paper making (nagashi-zuki or tame-zuki) is employed. In both methods, pulp is scooped onto a screen and shaken to spread the fibers evenly. Nagashi-zuki (which uses neri in the vat) produces a thinner paper, while tame-zuki (which does not use neri) produces a thicker paper.


You'll have the unique opportunity to lend a hand in the process of Japanese paper-making, enjoying the camaraderie of this shared activity. At the end of this unique experience re-board your coach and commence the approximately 90 minute journey to the pier via the breathtaking Japanese countryside.
