Silversea Luxury Cruises A Hiroshima

Hiroshima

On August 6, 1945, at 8:15 am, a massive chunk of metal known as Little Boy fell from an American plane, and the sky ignited and glowed for an instant. In that brief moment, however, it became as hot as the surface of the sun in Hiroshima, until then a rather ordinary workaday city in wartime Japan. Half the city was leveled by the resulting blast, and the rest was set ablaze. Rain impregnated with radioactive fallout then fell, killing many that the fire and 1,000-mph shock wave had not.

By the end of this mind-boggling disaster, more than 140,000 people died. Modern Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park (Heiwa Kinen Koen) is at the northern point of the triangle formed by two of Hiroshima's rivers, the Ota-gawa (also called Hon-kawa) and Motoyasu-gawa. Monuments to that day abound in the park, but only one original site bears witness to that enormous release of atomic energy 60 years ago: the A-Bomb Dome. Its gloomy shadows are now surrounded by a vibrant, rebuilt city. As if to show just how earnestly Hiroshima has redefined itself, only a short walk to the east is Nagarekawa-cho, the city's most raucous nightlife district.

Excursões em Hiroshima

Highlights of Hiroshima

Explore the tragic past of Hiroshima and its hope for the future during this memorable, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Atomic Bomb Dome

Depart the pier for the approximate 30-minute narrated drive to Hiroshima City. Upon arrival, an exterior visit is made to the Atomic Bomb Dome, the skeletal remains of the former Industrial Promotion Hall. The dome serves as a visual reminder of the death and destruction of the atom bomb, and is the only blast survivor left in ruins. Piles of colourful origami cranes lie in front of the dome, the symbol of Hiroshima's hope that nuclear weapons will never be used again. Afterward, visit the Peace Memorial Park and Museum.


Peace Memorial Park

Peace Memorial Park is dotted with memorials to the victims of the first atomic bomb, including the cenotaph that contains the names of all known victims of the bomb (except the Koreans, who now have a separate monument). The flame beneath the cenotaph is to burn until the last nuclear weapon on earth has been destroyed. View the Statue of the A-Bomb Children, dedicated to the war's most innocent victims, and the Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound, which contains the ashes of 70,000 unidentified victims.


Peace Memorial Museum

The Peace Memorial Museum explores Hiroshima before and after the bombing. In an effort to come to terms with its history, one building addresses Hiroshima's militaristic past, putting aside any conclusion that the city was a blameless victim, and explaining why it was chosen as a target; Hiroshima was home to Japan's military command centre and was a military supply base. The museum's exhibits include photographs and artefacts from the bomb's aftermath.


Shukkein Garden

Leaving the museum, drive by Hiroshima Castle en route to the Shukkein Gardens. The name Shukkein means 'landscape garden in miniature'. Modelled after the famous West Lake in Hangzhou, China, the garden was first laid out in 1620 by a master of the tea ceremony. Ponds, streams, islets and bridges are employed to make the garden appear larger than it actually is.


Following your visit, commence the approximate 25-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 1.2 miles (about two kilometres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. The museum contains sensitive material, including graphic pictures and displays of the atrocities of war. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing, and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses from the ship. Japanese yen is required for any purchases: guests are advised to exchange money at the airport prior the cruise. Flash photography is prohibited at the Peace Memorial Museum.



Mitaki-dera Temple

Experience an authentic monk's training temple which is located in the mountains. See a different world from ordinary before enjoying a lunch. After lunch sees Hiroshima's best high lights, including the Peace Memorial Park, the Peace Memorial Museum and an atomic bomb dome.


Mitaki-dera

Depart from the pier for a thirty-minute scenic drive. The mini coach will drop you off for an extensive walk up a steep path. Arrive at the monk training temple visit to visit Mitaki-dera Temple. This temple is built in 804 AD. During the walking tour through the place, you will find Buddhism holy world harmonizing with nature; moss-covered stone steps, plenty Buddha's statues in the rock, peaceful garden and waterfall.


Next enjoy a typical Japanese or Western Lunch before visiting Hiroshima's most popular venues.


Peace Memorial Park and Museum

Afterwards arrive at the Peace Memorial Park that is dedicated to the victims of the atomic bomb, dropped on August 6th 1945, during World War II. The Park is home to the Peace Memorial Museum and eloquent monuments, the museum exhibiting photographs and things left behind from the bomb's aftermath. Embrace the actual condition during that time.


Atomic Bomb Dome

Following the Peace Memorial park visit the Atomic Bomb Dome which is internationally recognized symbol of Hiroshima. It was an Industry Promotion Hall near Ground Zero to survive the blast - the dome is skeletal because it was vaporized. These buildings are regarded as the symbol for the world peace. See piles of colourful origami cranes lie in front of the dome, the symbol of Hiroshima's hope that nuclear weapons will never be used again.


Board the coach for the 30 minute drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.1 miles (about 1.7 kilometres), up a narrow steep path. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Wear comfortable clothing in layers and closed-toe walking shoes. The tour sequence may vary.
